Arts in Health

 

Arts in Health is a fast-emerging field that has developed in response to interest regarding the diverse ways in which the arts contribute to health, wellbeing, social inclusion and healthcare practice across a range of settings.

The field has become an inter- and multi-disciplinary arena for those concerned with research, policy and practice initiatives, including artists, health care professionals, community workers, and researchers in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

In County Sligo there are a number of arts and health projects directed by the County Sligo Arts and Health Partnership. This partnership takes a broad-based approach in examining uses of the arts in public health, health promotion and health care. The Partnership published a Research Report ‘Towards an Arts and Health Partnership in Sligo’ alongside a five year strategic plan for arts and health ‘HE+ART A Participatory Arts and Health Strategy for Sligo 2007-2012’.
