The cultural happiness pill

Project title

Den kulturelle lykkepillen

Description of initiative

Art, culture and mental health is the organizer of The cultural happiness pill. They offer a diverse cultural program for care houses and adapted meeting places for people with mental health problems. They regularly organize courses, concerts or performances at the meeting places. The offer is especially aimed at those who for various reasons have problems seeking out cultural offers outside the care houses. Easier access to art and culture-related activities can contribute to increased participation and perhaps also experience of increased quality of life. Art encounters can create awareness, as long as the art reflects real human experiences. It can be said that these experiences largely constitute art. And this can be understood as public health work, in a broad sense.
