We’re looking forward to 26 November, when we will conclude our Beyond Measure?
activities with a keynote address from Dr Daisy Fancourt, leading arts and health researcher based at UCL.
Dr Fancourt's research focuses on the effects of social and community participation on health, with a particular interest in the effects of arts and cultural engagement. She chairs the International Arts Health Early Career Research Network, the UKRI MARCH Network, and is a consultant to the World Health Organisation on arts and health. She co-authored the 2019 WHO publication What is the evidence on the role of health and wellbeing in the WHO European Region.
In a forthcoming article
in Public Health, Daisy and collaborators conclude that improving arts and cultural engagement may help reduce health inequalities.
