Aesop Office Coordinator
Location: Witney, Oxfordshire
The arts can transform people's lives, improve people's health and well-being, and have a role in solving social problems. The UK has an arts sector which is world-class and wide-reaching: commercial arts such as the music industry and publishing, voluntary arts (49,000 local arts groups involving 9.4 million people) and a publicly funded sector which helps the arts to innovate, widen access and raise quality.
Aesop is a bridge-builder between the health and arts sectors helping arts enterprises in health grow. Aesop's mission is to realise this potential to transform helping health harness the powers of the arts, and helping the arts gear up to deliver health improvement. One of their key projects: Dance to Health, is a pioneering falls prevention dance programme for older people. It combines evidence based exercise with the creativity, energy and sociability of dance. Falls are traumatic for older people and a major challenge for the health system. Falls destroy confidence, increase isolation and reduce independence. They cost the NHS 2.3 billion per year.
