14th NRHC Recommendation

The Arts intrinsically provide health benefits through connecting people and opening conversations alongside the well documented physical and psychological benefits of art forms such as singing and dancing. This conference has identified an urgent need to respect, include, collaborate and engage in the health sector. I propose that health organisations look at collaborating with local artists and arts organisations to extend the benefits of health promotion to actively and positively engage with clients or those in need of connecting to services.
