Arts and Health Advocacy

The NCEM has been working alongside medical professionals (including trainees), health and wellbeing researchers and community musicians, to share experience and knowledge surrounding the benefits the creative arts have on our health and wellbeing. This has included workshops and seminars at the NCEM, including opportunities for the general public to come to open, interative seminars too. 

We also took part in the city wide evaluation of arts and health projects as part of the York Health and Wellbeing Consortium, where we evaluated our own singing for health group, Cuppa & A Chorus. You can see some of the findings on our dedicated Cuppa page.
