Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland (ACHWS) is a membership organisation providing information and support for anyone working across arts and culture, health and wellbeing in Scotland. Building on extensive evidence and research, we advocate that the arts can provide enormous benefit to our health and wellbeing, both for specific patient populations in healthcare settings and through integrating culture into our everyday lives.

The network is open for anyone to join, including artists, organisations, healthcare providers and researchers, and we take a broad understanding of both the arts and health. Accordingly, we seek to connect research, policy and practice, and to be a collective voice for arts and health in Scotland. We do this through running regular meetings and events, providing resources, and supporting professional development, as well as a range of other activities.
