The team at Culture Commons have been working with Centre for Cultural Value to transpose key findings from an extensive review of research associated with culture, health and wellbeing into policy recommendations for decision makers, funders and the research community.
Between October 2019 and November 2022, Culture Commons' research partners at the Centre for Cultural Value undertook an extensive literature to better understand the evidence supporting the culture, health and wellbeing policy space.
That research took a systematic and critical approach to understand the strength of the existing evidence base, and this resulting paper highlights where current gaps in knowledge lie and outlines implications for future research, funding and policy development.
Amongst other things, the paper reflects on the range and quality of research identified and suggests several ways strategic investments in culture, health and wellbeing research could support the roll-out and scale-up of successful interventions.
