The Sidney De Haan Research Centre for Arts and Health is currently engaged in an integrated programme of research exploring the possible health benefits of active participation in music making and singing. It aims through its research and evaluation activity to contribute to a wider understanding of the power of the arts in health and social care and in the promotion of community wellbeing and health. In particular, the Centre is seeking to contribute to building an evidence base to help justify greater investment in the field of arts, wellbeing and health by NHS Trusts and local authorities.

This conference has been organised to mark the third anniversary of the establishment of the Centre in the Creative Quarter in Folkestone – a wider creative arts economic regeneration project managed by the Creative Foundation, and made possible by the vision and generosity of Roger De Haan.
