The Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance (CHWA), funded by Arts Council England, is working with arts, health and wellbeing consultant Jane Willis to develop a Quality Framework with the Creative Health sector.
Quality is a situated concept. It will mean different things to each of us depending on what’s important to us and the context in which we work, the communities with whom we work, the nature of our practice and what we aim to deliver. As Francois Matarasso states,
“an arts programme cannot be judged good (or bad), unless the concept of good is defined. Good for what? Good for whom? Good in comparison with what?”
Through this project, CHWA will work with the sector to understand and articulate what constitutes “good” for those working within the context of Creative Health.
