Re: Arts can improve health. Global South Arts in Health Week shows us how

Thank you Ben for sharing this insightful and thought-provoking blog. Adding the link to the related policy brief titled  Arts Interventions for Sustainable Sanitation and Resource Recovery

I was curious to know
  1. What are the challenges in scaling up and sustaining arts-based interventions for sanitation and resource recovery?
  2. How can researchers and practitioners ensure that arts-in-health initiatives are truly decolonized and centered on the perspectives and needs of marginalized communities?
  3. What potential synergies exist between arts-based interventions and other approaches (e.g., policy changes, infrastructure development) in achieving sustainable and equitable sanitation solutions?
It would be great if the BG project team and others could dwell on these questions.

Arts can improve health. Global South Arts in Health Week shows us how

From singing to participatory theatre, the arts are a proven tool used to facilitate increases in Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) awareness and improve public health.

In the  Towards Brown Gold project , we are taking this a step further. We are using the arts to engage people and communities living in rapidly urbanising towns and cities with so called ‘second generation’ sanitation challenges.
