Nordic Arts & Health Research Network

Save the date: Arts & Health Research Seminar on 7 November 2018, Turku, Finland

 

We warmly invite all Nordic researchers interested in the intersections of arts, culture, health and wellbeing to join the multidisciplinary Arts & Health Research Seminar on 7 November 2018 at 9.30-16.30 in Turku, a beautiful old city on the southwest coast of Finland. The research seminar will be held at the Arts Academy of Turku University of Applied Sciences (Linnankatu 54, Turku).

The aim of the seminar is to create a network of Nordic researchers in the interdisciplinary field of Arts & Health, offer an opportunity to discuss ongoing research projects, and identify common research topics. The initiative for the network is taken by the Arts Academy, Turku University of Applied Sciences in collaboration with Centre for Culture & Health (Aalborg University), Research Center for Culture and Health (University of Turku), Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norwegian Centre for Arts and Health (Nord University), Volda University College and Karolinska Institutet.

The main goal of the seminar is to launch and make further plans for Nordic Arts & Health Research Network collaboration. The purpose of the network is to support multidisciplinary discussion between researchers and provide a forum for cooperation. The future activities of the research network may include e.g. organising research seminars, workshops and thematic study groups as well as initiating joint research projects.

Details on the seminar and the full programme will be updated on the Taikusydän webpage during summer 2018.
