Studies have shown that art and activities based on art have diverse positive impacts on physical health, mental well-being as well as perceived well-being, quality of life and happiness.

In the ARTHEWE project (1.9.2020-31.8.2023), five European HEI’s are developing higher education related to the field of arts and health. In each partner organization, the project will develop, in cooperation between the partners, study modules related to either social and health sector, well-being and health promotion or arts and culture curricula, joint degrees in these fields or other study modules.

ARTHEWE develops multiform pedagogical approaches and art-based methods in the field of arts and health as part of online and contact learning, as well as interprofessional work in the field of arts and health. The project defines the core expertise of the professionals working in the international field of arts and health, in international cooperation.

The contents of the study modules to be developed in the ARTHEWE project include among other things:

  • promotion of well-being and health through creative methods
  • social sustainability and personal professional growth
  • meta-skills needed in working life
  • arts-based and embodied methods
  • exploring and understanding concepts of health and wellbeing from a performative aesthetics standpoint.
