As part of our Perfare project we are looking for Hungary-based artists or companies creating in the field of performance art, who are motivated and prepared to work with social welfare organizations.
PERFARE (2022-2025) is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Culture Programme, which intends to enhance the cooperation between the cultural and the welfare sector by creating innovative models for artistic interventions supporting people with physical or mental health issues. The project is to be carried out by five creative and cultural organizations from Italy, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and Hungary, who will be involved in capacity building processes to foster their ability to work with the actors of their local Welfare systems.
