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:

 University Course

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.
