Inclusive arts practices

The Centre for Arts and Wellbeing has a membership of academics, creative practitioners and health practitioners across the University of Brighton. We work with our associate members, as well as local, national and international communities, to improve individual, social and environmental wellbeing.

Our work is focused on meaningful impact through an understanding of the practical wisdom that is accessed through the arts. We work inclusively and collaboratively with health and wellbeing partners, investigating priorities of mutual interest and developing new, interdisciplinary and community-oriented research approaches. Our expert arts practices include drawing, design, creative writing and media; our expert health and wellbeing practices include mental health, psychology, resilience, sustainability and medicine.

Research and enterprise in this field has attracted international attention for example: inclusive arts practices backed by the Tate Gallery and introduced across South Asia; drawings on environmental degradation prompting government interventions; community writing and film recognised as a means to social expression and integration in challenged communities.
