Culture, museums and wellbeing
Our evidence programme on Culture and Sport will help us to understand how we can improve wellbeing through cultural and sporting activities – involvement in music, visual arts, our leisure, heritage and physical activities.
There is a lot of interest in this area. Here are a few organisations and upcoming events:
- All Party Parliamentary Group started in 2014 for Arts, Health and Wellbeing
- A National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing aims to share information, to improve existing practice, help build resilience and provide support around museums and health and wellbeing.
- 29th Feb The Alliance is launching Museums and Wellbeing Week which includes the Museums and Wellbeing Conference on 2nd March in Manchester → book tickets
- 2nd Feb AESOP, an arts charity and social enterprise are hosting the First National Arts in Health Showcase and Conference in London →book tickets
There are thousands of museums for art and science around the world, but not one Museum of Happiness. We’d like to see museums where children and adults can enjoy and explore the art and science of happiness.
