Open Call for Projects: Arts and Culture for a Better and Healthier Life
With an Open Call for projects, NDPC, NDPHS, EUNIC Global and Arts Promotion Centre Finland are launching a joint project “The Art of Staying Healthy”. In the project, we aim to foster collaboration between the arts and health sectors and to pilot initiatives that contribute to the health and well-being of people and communities in the Northern Dimension area.
We invite organisations to submit ideas that explore how arts and cultural activities can be integrated into the provision of health and social care services. The proposals should engage specific target groups, for example, vulnerable populations, different age groups or patient groups.
The successful applicants will be offered workshops and mentoring to develop their ideas and will receive a grant of up to 10 000 EUR to pilot the methodologies and implement project activities. The selected projects will need to be implemented from November 2021 to November 2022.
For more information, contact Center for Markets in Transition in Aalto University School of Business. CEMAT is the lead coordinator of the Northern Dimension Institute, which produces research-based knowledge to the use of the Northern Dimension thematic partnerships.
“The Art of Staying Healthy” is a joint project by Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture, Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being, EU National Institutes for Culture Global and Arts Promotion Centre Finland. The project is co-funded by the European Union.
