Cultura e Salute
The Cultura e Salute (meaning Culture and Health) project was conceived as part of a three-year partnership with the Culture Division of Lugano city council. Its aim is to harness existing opportunities for using the arts to support treatment, a goal it achieves by nurturing and promoting knowledge, research and implementation.
A long-term policy is achieved by strengthening ties and mechanisms for cooperation between culture, welfare and healthcare sectors, thereby improving people’s quality of life.
Il progetto è patrocinato dalla Città di Lugano, Fondazione IBSA e USI. L’obiettivo è quello di approfondire temi scientifici attraverso i diversi linguaggi artistici ma anche quello di sostenere tutti le istituzioni e le persone che operano in ambito culturale.
The project involves various activities:
In conjunction with USI’s Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, the IBSA Foundation has initiated Switzerland’s first “Cultura e Salute” course. This is aimed at students of the Master’s programme, and is open to those enrolled in the faculties of Biomedical Science, Communication, culture and society.
Creation of a competence centre within the IBSA Foundation dedicated to Cultura e Salute, to promote a greater understanding of the effects which culture can have on people’s health and wellbeing.
Switzerland’s first forum on the theme, entitled “Cultura e Salute - alliance for a sustainable future”, due to take place in Lugano on 26-27 November, 2021.
A fund to support activities and projects, set up thanks to a partnership between culture and care organisations in healthcare facilities.
