Arts Matter | The Evidence Video
6 September 2022
The evidence is in! In collaboration with our friends at the Arts Foundation we’ve distilled the global research that proves the value of art and creativity into this short video. Arm yourselves with the facts, and spread the word!
- Arts rich schools have better results in numeracy and literacy
- 82% of parents say being creative makes them feel ‘good’ or ‘excellent’
- People in Aotearoa are feeling more positive about the arts than ever before
- + So much more
Special thanks to Professor Peter O’Connor and The Centre for Arts and Social Transformation (CAST) team for their mahi in bringing together this research, and McCarthy Design for translating it so beautifully.
