Abstract

The potential health benefits of culture receive increasing academic and policy attention. However, although new researchs on the links between culture and health and well-being are published regularly, it remains difficult to identify existing patterns of evidence and gaps. The CultureForHealth consortium was tasked by the European Commission with the role of
providing a summary of such patterns, and to make policy recommendations as to how the European Union can build on existing knowledge, advance it, and support cultural and other relevant actors to guarantee that the health benefits of culture are recognised and unleashed. Doing so can support broader efforts to build what the OECD describes as an economy
of well-being (2019)
