The National Endowment for the Arts guide to community-engaged research in the arts and health

This new guide from the US outlines ways to reconcile the field-specific vocabularies used in the arts and health research; identifies study goals and methods for engaging community members as equal partners in a research project; and highlights the benefits of partnering for arts professionals and researchers.

The report also suggests that arts professionals can help researchers identify questions and issues of importance and assist study participants in recognising the social and emotional factors that affect their health, while researchers can help arts professionals assess the effectiveness of their programs and secure funding for successful programmes.
