The Institute of Public Health (IPH) is hosting a webinar on 25 April to launch a number of resources exploring Ageing, Arts and Creativity: An evaluation toolkit and two new online learning pathways that will provide practical guidance on how to assess the impact of arts and creativity interventions in later life.

This work stems from the publication of the Institute of Public Health’s evidence review in 2021 on how arts and creativity can have positive outcomes for older people’s health and wellbeing. A key recommendation was the need for an evaluation toolkit for the arts and creativity sector to be able to better measure, record and assess the impact of their programmes.

Toby Finch from IPH’s ageing team will present details of the Toolkit for Assessing the Impact of Arts and Creativity Interventions for Older People and the following online learning pathways :

  • Arts and Creativity: Lessons for Active Ageing
  • How to Guide for Evaluation Methods for Arts and Creativity Programmes.

The learning pathways were developed by IPH for its Public Health Matters platform.

Panel Discussion
Following the launch, IPH Director of Ageing Research and Development, Professor Roger O’Sullivan, will chair a panel discussion with Stephanie McKervill (ArtsCare, Head of Operations & Artistic Direction), Dominic Campbell (Co-founder Creative Aging International) and Tara Byrne (Age and Opportunity, Arts Programme Manager).
