Arts and Health: Partners in Wellness (In French only), HC Link

Online
February 25, 2016

11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. EST

This webinar is presented in French.

There is no doubt that physical activity is good for your health; the relationship between cultural activity and health however, still remains unrecognized or underestimated. Many studies conducted here in Canada and elsewhere have brought to light a series of links between an active cultural life and a number of health indicators.

This Réseau CS webinar, co-presented with the Canadian Arts Presenting Association and Arts Health Network Canada, is intended for public health and primary health care workers as well as workers from the cultural sector. It will offer:

  • an introduction in the interdisciplinary domain of arts and health;
  • an overview of research showing links between artistic practice and health;
  • mechanisms that might explain the relationship between arts and health;
  • ideas and resources which could help both health and arts sectors to take advantage of each other.
