Arts Loco - using arts to enhance wellbeing
Friday, 1 September, 2017
A 'Learning Matters' awards 2017 Case Study.
Since its beginning in 2011 Arts Loco has aimed to offer an innovative model of arts and health to enhance the wellbeing of communities in Liverpool (see Appendix 1). The Student Development Coordinator in the Liverpool School of Arts and Design embarked on a placement in the heart of Aintree's hospital arts programme PARTIA (Promoting Art in Aintree). By working collaboratively with local universities an effective work based learning programme was developed to serve the patient population through a quality programme of arts activities.
