Mind, body, spirit: How museums impact health and wellbeing

This new publication, born out of a year-long action research project, Museums, Health and Wellbeing, focused around the creation of a network of museums in the East Midlands region and funded by Arts Council England enabled five museums from the region to develop projects which would contribute to the health and wellbeing of their communities.

It will be of interest to any museums looking at the impact their work can have on the community around them.

Produced by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG), School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, it includes sections on ‘Responding to health and wellbeing needs’ and, ‘A framework for action’. See the full report.
