Arts and health is used to refer to all work with creativity, arts and culture that supports people’s health and well-being.

By ‘arts and health’ we mean all artforms and may include visual arts and craft, music, dance, theatre, creative writing, storytelling, singing and more.

Arts and health is delivered by skilled arts and health practitioners, artists, musicians, dancers, writers and theatre makers in collaboration with patients, staff and communities.

Some brilliant examples include live music to soothe and comfort patients, dance for falls prevention, singing to improve lung health and memory, visual arts to improve mental health and well-being.

What is the Arts and Health Charter?

Our public promise to integrate the arts into the work of the health board making it an integral part of how we deliver health and well-being services.
