A series of commissions and projects produced by FACT, working in partnership with artists, health organisations, the private sector, Liverpool City Council and Liverpool PCT, the Healthy Spaces programme reflect the Five Ways to Wellbeing.
FACT believes artists can play an intrinsic role in the creation of healthy spaces using digital arts and new media. We believe through artist interventions we can encourage health and wellbeing within spaces - this could be physical, imaginary or emotional. There are a number of ways which we deliver this work; through commissions for waiting rooms, in-hosptial commissions, participatory projects and online resources.
This programme was developed with the following aims
- Deliver high quality commissions within health settings
- Improve health and wellbeing through commissioning artworks or developing projects that encourage people to be active, take notice, connect, keep learning and give.
- Establish strong delivery partnerships and collaborative projects
- Develop projects which will have a positive impact on users health and well-being
