We work with a range of partners and a variety of audiences to explore the role of cultural participation in health and wellbeing. We are interested in the biopsychosocial benefits of all things cultural, including the work of museums, galleries, archives and heritage sites in enhancing quality of life, physical and mental health, wellbeing and social inclusion for older and disadvantaged adults, and people with dementia and their carers.
