Webinar on Healthier Ageing through Arts and Creativity to launch new resources
Arts and creativity

 

 

The Institute of Public Health (IPH) is hosting a Healthier Ageing through Arts and Creativity webinar to launch a number of new resources on using evidence to show the benefits of Arts and Creativity in later life. 

IPH is launching an evaluation toolkit and two new online learning pathways that will provide practical guidance on how to assess the impact of arts and creativity interventions in later life. 

These new resources follow the publication in 2021 of an evidence review on how arts and creativity can have positive outcomes for older people’s health and wellbeing. 

Toby Finch from IPH's ageing team will present details of the Toolkit for Assessing the Impact of Arts and Creativity Interventions for Older People and the following online learning pathways : 

  • Arts and Creativity: Lessons for Active Ageing 
  • How to Guide for Evaluation Methods for Arts and Creativity Programmes. 

The learning pathways were developed by IPH for its Public Health Matters platform

As part of the webinar, IPH Director of Ageing Research and Development, Professor Roger O'Sullivan, will chair a panel discussion with input from Stephanie McKervill from ArtsCare; Dominic Campbell from Creative Aging International; and Tara Byrne from Age and Opportunity.
