Museums for Health and Wellbeing: A Preliminary Report from the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing.
This report describes the wealth of activity around health, wellbeing and social care that museums and galleries are already offering across the UK. In order to understand this emerging field of practice, a scoping exercise was undertaken by the Alliance between September 2015 – February 2016 to map health and wellbeing activity across the UK museum sector.
Due to the magnitude of current work and the speed of growth, the results presented in this report represent the tip of the iceberg of work in this field. The results of this research are available on the Alliance website which contains over 200 resources and a searchable database.
The Alliance is funded by Arts Council England.
