Arts, Health and Social Change Research

Our Research Group is dedicated to fostering art-based initiatives that drive social change towards inclusivity and equality in healthcare. In collaboration with the NHS (CNWL) we explore diverse disciplines, challenge hegemonic ideologies and explore innovative ways to integrate arts for societal betterment. Our interdisciplinary approach spans arts and health, fostering novel ideas with the potential to reshape our social fabric. We critically assess existing boundaries, redefining mental health treatment and wellbeing enhancement. Through various art forms, including visual arts, drama, music, dance, and digital creativity, we harness their therapeutic potential for social transformation. Our mission addresses the growing demand for academic, social, community, interdisciplinary, and health-oriented resources, advancing knowledge of arts-based practices, particularly in mental health and wellbeing services.
