The Art of Healing follow-on: Impact and Engagement

December 2022

The Art of Healing team have been successful in raising follow-on funds from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to take further afield the process initiated with children and teachers at Dolphin School Pulwama, Kashmir in 2020/21.

Following evaluation of the first project, this next stage will enhance its value and benefit through work with other communities elsewhere in the region and extend into other areas of conflict. The project is led by Dr. Michael Buser of University of West of England.

Creating a difference – a role for the arts in addressing child wellbeing in conflict-affected areas, an article written by the team and outlining the project process and findings, has been published in Arts & Health journal.
