The arts are emerging as a powerful force in the global effort to improve our mental health. From psychiatric wards to prisons, to end-of-life care, dementia, and trauma, can arts-based interventions measurably improve health outcomes? At Goals House, on the sidelines of the G7 meeting in London, Community Jameel, the Healing Arts and WHO’s Arts & Health Programme will convene a high-level meeting to build a broad coalition focused on scaling up the role of the arts in healthcare.
Building on a series of successful events hosted by Community Jameel at Goals House, the most recent of which focused on ‘The Healing Power of Arts after Trauma & Conflict’ during Goals House at UNGA 2020, this meeting is a continuation of the Healing Arts programme exploring the role of the arts and health.
London is a hotbed of science, art and innovation, so Goals House and Community Jameel will pull on leaders across many fields to contribute to this conversation. Assembling this group of people will bring together a unique set of perspectives on a complex issue and showcase solutions to a global audience. The resulting conversation will act as a catalyst for new partnerships and inspiration for others who could benefit from a similar approach embodied by this group.
