HeART - Art & Health
"Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by colour, and light, we do know this: that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of colour in the objects presented to patients, are actual means of recovery." Florence Nightingale 186
There has been growing understanding over the past few years about the impact that arts can have on health and wellbeing which extends further than eliminating boredom. By supplementing medicine and care, art programmes can engage patients in the arts to promote prevention of disease and build wellbeing and have been shown to have a positive effect on patients with physical health or mental health problems.
