Research is providing increasing evidence for the positive benefits of engagement with the arts for individual and community wellbeing at all stages of life and can provide a non-pharmaceutical adjunct to health interventions. This subject explores case studies of successful creative arts projects in community settings and discusses appropriate evaluation frameworks for health and wellbeing outcomes. Students will reflect on and evaluate critically a community arts project in their own region and will model the planning and conduct of community arts projects, the development of funding strategies, risk management and ethical conduct, developing creative place-based problem solving through writing a proposal for a project intended to promote health and wellbeing.
