Abstract:

This report is part of a wider review of the presentation of contemporary visual arts commissioned by Arts Council England. Its case studies look at the impact of the visual arts in the contexts of regeneration, health, and education and learning.

Twenty case studies provide rich and detailed pictures of contemporary artists engaging with communities to achieve a range and diversity of outcomes. The recommendations are made to further embed the visual arts in public policy development.

There is particularly compelling hard evidence of the benefits of good design and the presence of art in healthcare environments. Evaluation has shown faster patient recuperation, higher levels of staff recruitment and retention.
