Arts in Health refers mainly to our theatre activities that take place within the healthcare environment, providing new access and participation opportunities for artists, patients, health service staff and visitors.Any involvement in the arts has a positive effect on mental & physical wellbeing. Experience has proven that engagement in any artistic activity helps in relieving stress & worries, which in turn can provide relief for the individuals pain and symptoms.Taking an holistic view, the wellbeing of individuals and groups in society is enhanced by being connected to the arts – any kind of arts, at any kind of quality level.
