Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland

The arts and creativity can have an incredibly positive impact on physical and mental health. Finding ways to integrate and connect the sectors of culture and health can foster important opportunities and research, to make this impact felt even more widely throughout society.

That's where Arts Culture Health & Wellbeing Scotland (ACHWS) come in.

ACHWS is a network providing information and support for anyone working across arts and culture, health and wellbeing in Scotland.

We sat down with Robbie McGhee, Chair of ACHWS and Associate Director, Art in Hospital, and Claire Stevens, Secretary of ACHWS and Chief Executive, Voluntary Health Scotland, to find out more about the network, who it's for, and the benefits of joining.

This network is a great opportunity for anyone interested in the space of arts and health, so find out more about it over on the ACHWS website, and follow the link to become a member.

You can also stay up to date with the network by following them on Twitter and Facebook.
