Online event: Approaches to culture and health cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region

The potential benefits of art and culture for health and well-being have been well studied and proven – but how to turn theory into practice? In this online event, we showcased examples of concrete cross-sectoral actions and initiatives done in the Baltic Sea Region.

The event was organised by Odense Municipality on behalf of the Interreg BSR “Arts on Prescription” project, the NDPHS as the Coordinator of PA Health in the EUSBSR, and the NDPC, with financial support from the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2021-2027.
