Reflecting Value Ep 2: Making room for one another

By Centre for Cultural Value


In the second episode of Reflecting Value we focus on the specific role of culture in addressing health and wellbeing needs.


Research in the area of culture, health and wellbeing is often quick to jump to reporting outcomes, with the reporting of the processes underpinning these outcomes often falling by the wayside. So how do we find the balance in showcasing outcomes, whilst highlighting the process? And how might we research and evaluate the process?

We take a deep dive into the specific value of culture in relation to health and wellbeing outcomes, as well as exploring the role of specific cultural activities.
