Abstract:

Access to arts and health initiatives can have a profound and positive impact on the physical and mental wellbeing of people in Wales. It is important during the COVID-19 pandemic that the arts are used to maintain health and help people through one of the biggest challenges Wales has faced for generations.
This report includes many heart-warming examples of how people in Wales have been able to maintain their links with community-based arts initiatives, despite restrictions on movement. This work, taking place right across the country, will be vital in mitigating some of the indirect consequences potentially seen once the COVID-19 pandemic ends.
