Arts and culture important to happiness

A ComRes poll into the role arts play in older peoples’ lives found that more than three-quarters believe arts and culture play key roles in making them happy. Other benefits of the arts that survey respondents identified were health and community connections. However, lack of accessibility, company and information is preventing many older people from taking part and enjoying cultural events as much as they would like. In my mind, that is a fairly simple problem to begin to improve upon. Let’s find ways to link arts lovers of all ages. Who knows what inspiration could come from it!
