Arts Council of Wales Mapping Study

The ACW ‘Arts in Health in Wales – A Mapping Study of Current Activity’ was published in 2018. In response to the mapping findings, ACW has committed to building on successful practice in arts and health, developing capacity and skills in the arts sector, and working to strengthen the evidence base for this work. Recommendations include ACW supporting WAHWN to enable it to develop its services and resources so that it can better support and underpin the activities of its members, as well as focusing on:-

  • Well-being and recovery in relation to mental health and children and young people
  • Dementia
  • Strengthening the evidence base
  • Researching sustainable financial models of practice
