NSW Health establishes health and arts taskforce
NSW Health has recently established a Ministerial Taskforce on Health and the Arts.
The Taskforce will develop a Framework to support integration of the arts across the whole of the NSW Health system and ensure consistency with the National Arts and Health Framework and the NSW Arts and Cultural Policy Framework: Create in NSW.
The Taskforce will also provide specific guidance in relation to the following:
- A range of mechanisms and models for incorporating the arts into the design of health facilities and the delivery of health services within them, and the broader community
- A range of governance mechanisms and models for funding arts initiatives across NSW Health
- A ‘clearing house’ or online portal to foster dialogue, information and ideas on ways to encourage and fund the arts across NSW Health.
If you would like to be involved in a stakeholder engagement workshop or to have your say on the development of the Framework, please email: email@example.com
Further updates will be provided on the NSW Health and the Arts webpage as the project progresses.
