Arts + Public Health: Leveraging Cross-sector Collaboration for Better Health Outcomes

February 14, 2020

Over the past few decades, there has been heightened interest in the effects of arts and cultural participation on health and well-being in communities. Recent longitudinal large-cohort studies in the UK  have shown that arts engagement is associated with better mental and physical health, lower risk of depression, enhanced health behaviors, reduced loneliness, reduced engagement in adverse health behaviors, and even reduced premature mortality, among other outcomes.

This webinar will overview these findings and their impacts on health policy in the UK, and will share the work of Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America, a two-year national initiative designed to advance cross-sector collaboration between the public health and arts and culture sectors in the US through robust research and resources.
