I looked at the principles behind the hospitals' Healing Arts, Arts in Medicine, and Wellness
programmes. How are wellness programs embedded in hospital thinking and delivery. How are the arts delivered in hospitals, and to whom. What is the relationship between hospital management,hospital arts programme, and perceived goals for patients? What are the differences between the
creative arts and the healing arts?
I considered how ideas around the creative potential of older people are being challenged. Notions we hold about the older person and their relationship to their body. People's relationship to ageing and their interest in self-awareness and self-development, within the context of living a richer, healthier
and more balanced life.
