Arts and Health East is a new regional network designed to bring together those with an interest in the role the arts can play in promoting and sustaining community cohesion and individual health and wellbeing and contributing to recovery and reduced dependence in people who have been ill and disabled. The creative arts intervention consisted of several creative arts activities designed for bedside delivery. Art can create more intimate, calming and uplifting environments, contributing to improved health and wellbeing outcomes and bringing real benefits to patients, staff and visitors. Research shows that live music and other interactive activities can assist the healing process, reducing anxiety, pain and depression. You are welcome with qualifications in subjects across the arts and health but are required to demonstrate commitment to arts-health. They will seed-fund the best arts and health proof of concept ideas that emerge.

The breadth and diversity of the collection as well as the historical significance of many of the artefacts make the collection a unique resource to transform the healthcare environment for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors. Aesop and the Canterbury Christ Church University’s Faculty of Health and Wellbeing have identified continuing professional development as a¬†key factor in the future of arts in health.

PART TIME: Part-time MSc students participate in the first four modules in the same way as the full-time students but for part-time students, module five (i.e. the research and dissertation module) can be completed over the second year instead of finishing in the first year, allowing additional time and flexibility for conducting research that needs a longer time-frame and for flexibility to pursue other work or commitments.

The new MSc in Creative Arts and Mental Health is delivered as a collaboration initiative between the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the School of English and Drama, Queen Mary University of London.

Arts participation is a core value across all areas of the Arts Council’s work as reflected in the current mission statement , which commits to increasing public access, participation and engagement in the arts, as well as assisting artists of all disciplines to make work of excellence.arts and healtharts and health
