Culture And Health

Culture and health is a growing phenomenon throughout the world, where collaborations between the arts, culture and health sectors provide new opportunities for health and cultural life for citizens at all stages of life. The large-scale European project CultureForHealth has now launched a brand new digital map and directory where you can find inspiring projects from all over Europe, covering everything from street-art in hospitals in Italy, art activities against burnout in workplaces in Romania and hospital clowns in the warzones of Ukraine.

CultureForHealth: A Worldwide Perspective Of Resilience, Mental Health And Social Inclusion

The CultureForHealth mapping is an exhaustive initiative that aims to provide a more concrete image of the national, regional and local programs, initiatives and projects on culture, well-being and health across the European Union and around the world. At this very moment, the mapping includes around 500 initiatives, most of them from European countries, but also from North America, South America and Australia.

The mapping includes experimental, grass root pilot projects, long term sustainable projects, but also strategic projects implemented at national, regional or EU level. All these initiatives are available in an online open-access directory, which can serve as a learning tool for decision makers, practitioners and researchers interested in delivering culture and arts for public health and individual and community well-being.

The directory of initiatives on culture, well-being and health across the European Union and other countries is available *HERE*
