The report summarises findings from a series of longitudinal studies conducted between 2017 and 2022 that examined the relationship between arts and cultural engagement and health and wellbeing outcomes using UK and US cohort studies. The research was conducted by the Social Biobehavioural Research Group at University College London through funding from several grants, including a Wellcome Fellowship for Dr Daisy Fancourt [221400/Z/20/Z], an ESRC grant [ES/T006994/1], an award from Arts Council England [INVF-00404365], and a consortium of funding from the USA, including the National Endowment for the Arts [1862896-38- C-20], Bloomberg Philanthropies, and the Pabst Steinmetz Foundation, which was made possible through our close partnership with the Centre for Arts in Medicine at the University of Florida.
