Breaking new ground: how do the arts affect mental health?

In conversation with Dr Robyn Dowlen, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Cultural Value, and the Centre’s Co-Director Anne Torreggiani, the Audience Agency highlights the Centre’s research and valuable insights.

Research into the relationship between culture, health and wellbeing could unlock an understanding of how the mental health of young people can be supported by cultural activity.

Dr Robyn Dowlen, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Centre for Cultural Value, is working on a series of research digests covering key aspects of culture, health and wellbeing. In conversation with the Centre’s Co-Director Anne Torreggiani, they outline their research and share some valuable insights already discovered on arts and culture’s impact on young people’s mental health and wellbeing.

One of the Centre’s core objectives is to develop an independent, robust research and evidence base which outlines the impacts of arts, cultural, heritage and screen-based experiences on people’s lives and on society. The Centre for Cultural Value also want to communicate and disseminate key findings to the cultural sector through their research digests, which clearly summarise the research that makes up the evidence base.
