London Arts in Health Forum is a membership organisation which aims to develop the role of culture in wellbeing and to promote and support arts in health activity across London and nationally.
The organisation is free to join and offers events, a regular newsletter, training sessions, advice and support for artists, architects, clinical staff and service users – basically anyone with an interest in arts in health. LAHF currently has nearly 3,000 members from London and further afield.
On this site you will find information and updates about arts and wellbeing activity in London and nationally, as well as information about arts in health work overseas and research highlighting the value of creativity and culture in wellbeing.
For the past three years, LAHF has been working with colleagues from across England to develop the National Alliance for Arts, Health and Wellbeing. The Alliance has developed a Charter for Arts and Health, is liaising with Government to embed arts in health practice and is developing a number of media promotions to raise the profile of arts in health practice.
