Research Collaboration and Evaluation through Healing Arts Scotland


Healing Arts Scotland 2024 (HAS) is an exciting, upcoming country-wide weeklong event celebrating and advocating for improved physical, mental and social health through the arts. Spearheaded by Scottish Ballet as part of the Jameel Arts & Health Lab’s global ‘Healing Arts’ campaign in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), the one-week activation event is being produced together with a national coalition of organisations across culture, science, health, education and government as part of the Edinburgh International Festival.


CHASER (Research Collaboration and Evaluation through Healing Arts Scotland) will facilitate the creation of new research partnerships through the activation event to set a foundation for future innovation and research in Scotland. The project will involve creating and leading an evaluation of the week, drawing upon creative and co-designed methods.


Please visit the website for Healing Arts Scotland to find out more about how to get involved with the week.

This project is funded by the Jameel Arts & Health Lab (a partnership of the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, the Steinhardt School at New York University, Community Jameel, and CULTURUNNERS).
