‘Use or Ornament?’ a report of a research project carried out by François Matarasso of Comedia in the 1990s, demonstrated that arts participation is thoroughly beneficial for very many reasons.  For example, participation in the arts can:

  • Enhance confidence and self-esteem
  • Help build new skills
  • Strengthen social solidarity
