Arts & Public Health: Core Outcomes Set Briefing Paper
Arts and culture are increasingly being recognized as important catalysts in creating solutions to promote health and wellbeing. Today, a growing field of arts in public health is driving research and, in turn, evidence-based practice. And, while collaboration between public health professionals and artists is increasingly common in practice, guiding frameworks for assessing outcomes are lacking.
This paper summarizes a roundtable dialogue between thought leaders working at the intersections of the arts and culture and public health, or “arts in public health”. The dialogue explored the needs and opportunities related to the development of a core outcomes set for arts in public health. This paper shares those perspectives and offers commitments that define this work to date.
This paper calls for the development of a core outcomes set to enable more focused evaluation and research and, in turn, an evidence base that can drive funding and policy for cross-sector programs and interventions.
