There is growing interest in the connection between art and health/wellbeing. This study was commissioned by Creative Scotland to understand the scale and scope of the current involvement of professional artists in the area of health and wellbeing, and to explore the role that Creative Scotland can play in supporting this activity and helping the artists who wish to develop their skills in this area.

The scope of the work was tightly defined to cover artsrelated activity led by one or more professional artists, created with explicit artistic and health or artistic and wellbeing objectives, and designed to enhance the health and/or wellbeing of those with a health related condition or illness, the wider public, and the healthcare workforce.
