NOAH is the newly established National Organisation for the Arts in Health in the USA.
The Inquiry Report Creative Health: The Arts for Health and Wellbeing (second edition) presents the findings of two years of research, evidence-gathering and discussions with patients, health and social care professionals, artists and arts administrators, academics, people in local government, ministers, other policy-makers and parliamentarians from both Houses of Parliament.
The Short Report presents a summary in 16 pages and includes the Key Messages, Recommendations and Next Steps from the full report. A number of service users and expert patients contributed to the Inquiry, many of whom returned to take part in a focus group attended by the artist, David Shrigley. David’s drawings illustrate the Short Report.
