The Centre for Arts and Wellbeing at the University of Brighton develops research and enterprise initiatives that directly benefit the wellbeing of individuals and communities, innovating in a wide range of practices where the arts improve people's lives.

Our university has a long and illustrious history in art and design practices, medicine and healthcare, and was a pioneer in community engagement and co-productive research. The Centre for Arts and Wellbeing brings these strengths together, fostering novel, vital, creative and collaborative modes and methods through which a range of health and wellbeing issues are investigated and brought to public benefit.

Our expert arts practices include drawing, design, creative writing and media; our expert health and wellbeing practices include mental health, psychology, resilience, sustainability and medicine. We welcome research student applications in any of the research areas mentioned above.
