Abstract:

The earliest survey conducted on arts organisations, primarily in England, to gather information on their work in relation to community participation, skill development and regeneration promoting health. A total of 246 organisations were contacted and asked to complete a detailed questionnaire. The response rate was relatively low at 37%. A central conclusion drawn is that the ‘development of interpersonal skills, opportunities for making friends, and increased involvement are among the most important contributions to health that projects can make.’
