What We Do

Arts on Prescription & Creative Health projects

Artlift provides Arts on Prescription courses and multi-arts projects through which participants can move into a different space in their minds and/or in life. We work closely with our participants on Move On plans to enable them to self-sustain creative activities and, thereby, wellbeing.

We are a specialist creative health charity co-producing projects and courses for people living with mental health challenges, long-term chronic pain, who are living with or moving on from cancer and/or with other associated conditions or wellbeing challenges.

Sector Development & Workplace Wellbeing services

Artlift works to support development and diversification of the Creative Health sector through consortium, alliance and partnership working, publication of articles, and input into academic and other papers.

We provide services to help expand and diversify the sector including residencies, consultancy and training. This enables other counties / organisations to develop their own Creative Health and Arts on Prescription offers.

Additionally we impact positively on health, corporate and/or statutory or arts sector workforces through provision of Workplace Wellbeing packages. Read more below…….
