Project title

Initiatives pour le rapprochement des secteurs Art-Culture et Santé-services sociaux

Description of initiative

The organisation proposes 3 phases:
1. Sketch the current state of the field, mapping of initiatives: Identify and document arts, culture and health initiatives throughout Quebec. Identify the successes, obstacles and issues that emerge from joint practices in arts, culture and health in Quebec.
2. Promote the sharing of knowledge, best practices and tools based on arts and culture that have shown positive impacts on collective health and well-being (including resilience, social cohesion, reduction of loneliness and isolation).
3. Promote existing initiatives and promising interventions by focusing on arts and culture for the well-being of populations, including post-pandemic recovery.
