Defining Applied Arts and Health

Applied Arts in this framework includes any artform which is used in an applied way to intentionally bring about change within a health context. The terms ‘pure and applied science’ or ‘pure and applied mathematics’ are frequently used and understood therefore the term ‘applied arts’ should logically follow. All art is in a manner ‘applied’ in that it deals with intentionally evoking an aesthetic response.

However, ‘applied arts’ are those which use the conventions of the various artforms but are manipulated through artistic skill to bring about intentional change. This tends to be done not in a didactic fashion but in a spirit of co-participation with all involved. For example applied theatre practices in social reform or the use of fine art in occupational and expressive arts therapy would both fit this definition.

The emphasis of the Journal of Applied Arts and Health (Intellect) is to evidence the effectiveness of the interdisciplinary use of arts in health and arts for health. The journal provides a forum for the publication and debate within a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of arts in healthcare and health promotion.

This journal defines ‘health’ in its broadest possible term which includes physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, occupational, social and community health. The journal provides artists, researchers, healthcare professionals, educators, therapists, programme administrators and funding bodies an opportunity to report and reflect upon innovative effective practices. The effectiveness of applied arts practices is currently under-researched and this journal provides a vehicle for high quality scholarly activity. The journal embraces contributions of an international dimension.
