Launch of The CultureForHealth Report!

Policymakers, arts, cultural and health practitioners and experts are coming together on 24 November to showcase the potential that culture has on improving our health and well-being. The project CultureForHealth is launching their report collecting over 300 scientific studies on culture’s contribution to health and well-being, as well as providing policy recommendations for Europe.

On 24 November 2022, the project is hosting an online launch of the CultureForHealth Report to present the findings, the policy recommendations as well as examples of interventions currently happening within cultural and health and well-being sectors. With the ambition to trigger a true policy change in the EU on all levels, the programme brings policymakers, arts and cultural practitioners, and health and well-being experts together to dive deeper into the findings of the CultureForHealth Report.
