Thinking Room Courses

Project title

Kurstilbud Tankerom

Description of initiative

In the project Thinking Room provided by KKPH, people with mental health problems can participate in courses with professional artists in various art forms, techniques and expressions. Participants interact with artists in small groups in the artists' spaces or the musicians' studio. Participation is self-defining, so people who sign up for the courses have defined themselves into the target group. The courses run over 2 to 5 hours, once a week, over 6 to 10 weeks.
KKPH is a collaboration between the City Council Department for Culture, Diversity and Gender Equality and the City Council Department for Work, Social Affairs and Housing. KKPH is organizational under the Ministry of Culture with a city-wide responsibility. It arranges courses and activities in the districts, at municipal activity houses for the target group, with funds from KKPH.
