The course focuses on the interface between art, health and the social concept of well-being. It reflects theory, current policy and practice in relation to artists and creative people who wish to develop a professional practice in facilitating participatory arts in health and well-being contexts.
The course has a particular focus on good practice in relation to ethical issues, the rights of people involved in participatory practices and the evaluation of art-based projects. It will equip you with the knowledge of two main approaches to participatory art practice – art as therapy and the social aspects of art practice – enabling you to understand where, and how, these apply to health and well-being agendas.
