The Culture Health and Wellbeing strand of Great Place GM builds on a century of practice in Greater Manchester, with its blurring of boundaries between care, health and wellbeing, and of creativity in all its forms. It moves us towards being a Creative Health City Region where the value of culture and creativity are better understood and where culture and creativity are part of our response to social and health inequalities.
