Dissertation Project Interviewee

University of Edinburgh

What are the experiences of wellbeing among higher education students engaging in participatory arts classes? Poor wellbeing is an increasingly serious issue in the UK and higher education students are considered at a particular risk. The use of the arts to improve wellbeing is being increasingly recognised over multiple fields to be effective, cost efficient as well as sustainable and easily accessible. The aim of this project is to explore the experiences of higher education students who participate in arts classes to elucidate further the link between arts activities and wellbeing, from the perspective of participants themselves or facilitators of art groups. This project will use qualitative in-depth interviews, carried out between February and March 2024, to understand participant perceptions, experiences, and views on the topic of art for wellbeing. This project will culminate in a written dissertation exploring and analysing themes arising within the interviews, a project summary (available to all participants) and possible publication in academic journals. Who can take part:  The project is open to both students and art group facilitators (age 18+). Students should be current students at Scottish higher education institutions who, during their time at university, have participated in art classes in the community (not as part of their degree). Art group facilitators who run art classes in the community in Scotland are also welcome to participate. What will taking part involve: If you choose to take part, I will ask you to sign the Informed Consent form and then we will arrange a time to conduct the interview. Interviews will be recorded using Microsoft Teams and will last approximately 1 hour. Interviews can be done in-person (for example at a cafe of your choosing, or in an art space in Edinburgh), at a pre-booked room at the University of Edinburgh, or online. Interviews will take place between February and March 2024, and will explore, through open, conversational questions, the relationship between wellbeing and engagement with art classes, from the perspective of the interviewee.
