An exploration of the potential of the arts to impact on public health and wellbeing looking beyond the confines of the English-speaking world, with particular emphasis on the importance of political advocacy. This essay forms part of a larger research and evaluation project undertaken across Lithuania in 2012 and facilitated by the Artists Association Gallery.
This initial piece of work formed the basis of a key-note opening address to an international audience at the Arts of Good Health and Wellbeing conference in Australia, November 2012 under the title: A small scale global phenomenon: revelation or revolution? This work has been further developed for submission to a special edition of Arts and Health: An International Journal for Research, Policy and Practice.
