Restoring the Balance – The Effect of Arts Participation on Wellbeing and Health
Paul Devlin (Published March 2010 by Voluntary Arts England)

“In addition to a foreword from Minister of Culture and Tourism Margaret Hodge, the publication includes contributions from former Minister of the Arts, Lord Haworth; Minister for Further Education, Skills, Apprenticeships and Consumer Affairs, Kevin Brennan and the Department of Health’s joint lead on arts and health Professor Lord Appleby. Additionally, people from a wide range of backgrounds explain how their wellbeing, their health, and, in some cases, their lives have been transformed as a direct result of arts participation.” Voluntary Arts England
