An Evidence Review of the Impact of Participatory Arts on Older People

“An Evidence Review of the Impact of Participatory Arts on Older People” published by Mental Health Foundation showcases the positive impact participative arts can have on the health and wellbeing of older people.


This review includes 31 studies and 2,040 participants with the age range from 60 to 96 years. The beneficial impact of participatory art is evident at 3 different levels:


I. individual – mental and physical wellbeing
II. community – opportunities for meaningful social contact, friendship and support, raising awareness within the wider community
and
III. societal – positively transform attitudes to older people, breaking down both the self and external stigmas of being older.
