Arts and health: Home

This guide draws together materials for doing research in the interdisciplinary area of arts and health.

Welcome to our guide which is designed to support research into topics relating to arts, health and well being. It has been developed by the Health and Arts Research Initiative (HARI), an interdisciplinary research group looking at how the arts can be used to improve health – including prevention, management and treatment of a wide range of health and social conditions. HARI includes contributors from the Art, Architecture, Pharmacy and Psychology departments.

We hope this guide will inspire you to undertake research, or a student project, in this area, as well as linking you to relevant resources from across the disciplines.
