The Art of Good Health Partnership Grant harnesses the power and potential of the arts to engage individuals and communities in activities that improve their health and wellbeing by:
– activating new strategic funding partnerships across arts, cultural and community organisations, and their local councils
– trialling and delivering new projects to improve health and wellbeing, using arts and creative approaches
– building new evidence.
The Art of Good Health program will provide support for councils to design new projects that address health problems or enhance health promotion strategies by introducing the role of arts and creative approaches within them. Our aim is to increase the use and application of arts and creative approaches within local health promotion strategies and programs.
