ArtsHealth is the connection between the humanities and creative arts, and health, medicine, science and well-being.
ArtsHealth: Centre for Research and Practice brings together the research of academics and post-graduate students in the creative arts with those of academics in the social sciences, sciences, humanities, education, architecture and medicine to focus on studies that investigate and promote community health and public and community-based arts and the development of culturally rich and sustainable social environments.
The research focus of the centre falls into three broad areas:
- The Humanities/Creative Arts and Medical Science
- Creativity, Culture, Community and Wellbeing
- Practice-based Research
