The University of Tasmania has recently introduced a new engagement subject called Foundations of Arts and Health. This unit has been made available to increase community awareness in the benefits of arts-based approaches to health and well-being.
Foundations of Arts and Health explores ways to integrate creative practices into programs and to promote personal health and well being. This unit will give students evidence based examples of the benefit of arts based approaches to health and well-being as well as practical activities from a variety of creative genres.
The University of Tasmania also has additional units that may be of interest, such as Stress Reduction and Mindfulness. Both of these units are available online, with full HECS scholarships available.
