Research and evaluation

Providing evidence for the benefits of arts and culture is important as it helps to demonstrate that arts and culture have a positive impact on communities and improves the quality of life and health of individuals (health outcomes).

Many funders and partners may require evidence on the benefits or cost effectiveness of a project to help them determine whether to fund, participate or support a project. The availability of research that measure health outcomes and demonstrates the cost effectiveness and/or benefits is therefore critical.

This section contains a link to a list of research, projects that have been evaluated and reviewed by others working in the same field (peer reviewed) and have been published.

The research is hosted in searchable databases from the Royal Society of Public Health Special Interest Group Research Corner and Arts and Health Resources.
