Live Well Make Art is an informal network of artists, arts organisations, health activists and health professionals and academics from across Greater Manchester. Their vision states:

‘We want a healthier Greater Manchester, where all its people can share the benefits of engaging in and enjoying the arts and creative activities with each other. We want our streets, neighbourhoods and communities to be vibrant places to live.’ Responsibility for the health and social care budget has been devolved from national level to Greater Manchester; this represents an opportunity to ensure that the part the arts can play in contributing to positive health and well-being at individual and community level, in raising awareness of the economic and social inequities which influence health outcomes and in mitigating the effects of disadvantaged is recognised and valued.'
