Arts on Prescription - Sector Guide

Using the arts to promote healthy and active ageing

Arts on Prescription uses participatory arts programs, alongside traditional health care, to help older people improve their physical and mental wellbeing. Creating art has a positive impact on a range of challenges to wellbeing, such as anxiety, depression, social isolation and bereavement, while singing and movement art forms can improve physical health and mobility.

Arts on Prescription links older people with professional artists to explore and enjoy a wide range of artistic endeavours in a regular small group setting over ten weeks.
