The emerging arts for health movement goes under the banner of #LiveWellMakeArt. Interest and involvement in the movement will be boosted by a 100 Moments campaign in October. The Moments, designed to draw attention to the benefit of arts participation in people’s wellbeing, will take place across the 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester. These will be independently organised by arts organisations who have signed up to the Live Well Make Art values and promote arts activities that foster health and wellbeing outcomes.
