We are delighted to have contributed towards the development and coordination of Arts Council Malta (ACM)’s inspiring The Culture and Well-Being Forum.

The forum focused on the connections between artistic expression/engagement and well-being, highlighting the relevance and importance of connecting culture and well-being as enablers for change, transformation, and remedy on a holistic level.

The forum was opened by ACM Head of Strategy Adrian Debattista and keynote speaker Professor Charmaine Gauci, Superintendent of Public Health. Panel speakers and attendees included health and social care professionals, artists and art therapists, cultural managers, researchers, educators, and policy makers.

ARC Research & Consultancy is committed towards collaborating on the development of an intersectoral action plan for Culture and Well-Being, in line with the European efforts calling for awareness about the critical role of culture and the arts in improving health and well-being at both the individual and collective level, CultureForHealth.
