An extensive mapping is carried out by CultureForHealth researchers and will contain relevant EU, national, regional and local programmes, initiatives and projects on culture, well-being and health across the European Union. From 7 March to 15 May we collect entries, leading to the publication of a first version of the mapping database on the website and a report by June 1st. The entry form will stay open until June 2023 allowing the database to grow continuously.
