The report aims to synthesise existing evidence on the positive effect of arts and cultural activities on health and well-being, and further it gathers policy recommendations and identifies challenges beyond the proposed policy directions.

The video recording from the one-day webinar shows speaks of policymakers, arts and cultural practitioners, researchers and health and wellbeing experts giving their point of view on the newly published CultureForHealth Report.
