Integrating the Arts into Health, a Major Development in Society:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
One of the most important developments in healthcare is the integration of the arts into approaches to healing and wellness. Often it is initiatives by community groups that support and place emphasis on how the arts can contribute to wellness in individuals and the community. We need to be able to assess the effectiveness of these community-based arts and wellness programs. The National Endowment for the Arts has just released a free guide to community research in arts and health projects. This is an important step forward in understanding how the arts can improve health and wellness. Please share this with anyone involved in arts and health projects in your community.
