Learn about the 17 innovative arts and health projects HARP supported across Wales.



From 2019-2022, Arts Council of Wales, Nesta, Y Lab (Cardiff University) and others teamed up to launch Health, Arts, Research, People - HARP, for short. They wanted to understand how arts can play a bigger role in our health and wellbeing.

HARP has supported 17 innovative arts and health projects across Wales - from singing for dementia to creative support for people living with addiction and more. Many of the projects supported people during the COVID-19 pandemic who were extremely isolated or experiencing mental health challenges.

What they did, how they did it and what they learned is captured in a new online resource.
