UKRI/AHRC Innovation Leadership Fellowship – ART/DATA/HEALTH: Data as creative material for health and wellbeing

Description

ART/ DATA/ HEALTH tackles two key issues in healthy aging and wellbeing: health literacy and digital skills. It does so by creating an innovative and interdisciplinary process that offers the public and professionals new tools at the intersections of data science with art practice.

The premise of the project is that both cultural participation and digital inclusion are essential for health and wellbeing. It comes at a time when personalised digital health technologies, big data and artificial intelligence algorithms increasingly permeate social and health care. In this context, the arts and humanities can help us innovate responsibly for better health and wellbeing.

Thus ART/ DATA/ HEALTH brings together care professionals, artists and service users through a community-based data/art project and uses this to further inform public health communication strategies and art interventions in the care sector.

The project foregrounds the skills development for disadvantaged people
and the wider public, to understand and interpret data about their health and wellbeing, as well as participate in the active collection of these data with the use of digital technologies.
