EFC Arts and Culture Thematic Network meeting – Cultural Welfare: what role arts and culture play in the health and well-being of citizens?
The EFC’s Arts and Culture Thematic Network is organising a meeting on ”Cultural Welfare: what role arts and culture play in the health and well-being of citizens?” in Turin, 21-22 November 2019, hosted by Fondazione CRT and Compagnia di San Paolo.
A movement is currently underway to recognise the role of arts and culture, in the health and well-being of society. Recent studies and research has verified the existence of a link between cultural activities and major issues such as social integration, health and innovation.
The two day meeting will see attendees get to grips with the topic of using the arts and culture as a tool to boost health and well-being, and aims to address some of the following questions:
- How the arts can play a more prominent role in the health and well-being of people?
- What is the role of funders when speaking about cultural welfare?
- What solutions have already been implemented and can be taken as examples and inspiration for others? What are the challenges?
Participants will have the chance to meet like-minded peers working in the arts and culture philanthropic sector, academics and experts, and will be provided the opportunity to learn, discuss and connect, inspired by the topic of cultural welfare.
