Many New Year’s resolutions are centred on living healthier and happier lives. To some that might mean exercising more, or eating better; to others it might mean finally learning the guitar, taking that pottery class, or to simply do things that make you happy and being kinder to yourself. An arts-related activity is often included in this mix. Why? It’s proven that participation in the arts helps us to be happy and healthy.
Arts have an essential role to play in supporting better health and well-being outcomes
