Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health Innovation Arts in Health

Arts in Health Netherlands

The mission of Arts in Health is to give creative art-making a permanent place in the care institutions of the Netherlands. Research shows that participation in the arts can support human wellbeing by shortening the recovery time of patients; preventing burnout in care staff; and promoting healthier lifestyles in the community.

Our goals:

●     Work with hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and community centers, advising the development of sustainable arts in health programs in support of wellbeing.

●     Develop arts in health education and training programs for university students and mid-career professionals.

●     Facilitate arts in health research.

Arts in Health is supported by the Aletta Jacobs School of Public Health, Nationaal Programma Groningen, University of Groningen, and University College Groningen.
