Read why Evan concludes: Finally, I came around to thinking that the specialism of 'arts and health' is a rather self-defeating idea. It may be necessary in the short to medium term, but eventually we shouldn't think of this as a separate area of practice from mainstream arts. Access to the arts should be everyone's expectation throughout their lives, as much as food and good sanitation. This should be part of the fabric of every single arts organisation, and the way that all artists are trained and supported. We are all living longer lives, and should ensure that everyone in society (regardless of their age or other circumstances) should be able to enjoy the benefits of creative participation and development. What do you want to be doing when you're 75? I doubt very much whether bingo features on the list.
