National Alliance for Arts, Health and Wellbeing Quarterly Update

The National Alliance for Arts, Health and Wellbeing has been working since July 2012 to develop support and interest in the relationship between arts and health. Made up of regional representatives from across England, the Alliance has undertaken a range of activity to increase opportunities for the arts and health to connect and impact positively on each other.

The Alliance’s primary function is to promote awareness of the excellent arts in health practice which is happening in England and beyond and to encourage policy-makers to create more opportunities for the arts to be commissioned in ways that support individual and community wellbeing. The Alliance has developed relationships with key bodies from the health and arts spheres and is beginning to see concrete developments from this work.
