Abstract:

The aim of this review is to provide evidence to funders about the benefits gained through art activities and to support arts organisations to improve their work. A comprehensive literature search and screening of the retrieved articles resulted in the selection of 23 peer review articles and 7 reports from the grey literature. They cover a variety of art forms: music and singing, drama, visual arts, dance, storytelling, festivals and mixed art forms.
