PERforming arts to promote social welfARE access in Europe
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 organisations from Italy, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and Hungary, whom will be involved in capacity building processes to foster their ability to work with the actors of their local Welfare systems. The members will share knowledge and capitalise already developed tools, as well as participate in a tour of field visits to gain direct experience on how performing arts interventions can improve Welfare services for people with health conditions. The main aims of PERFARE are to facilitate the access to performing art experiences for audience groups with health problems, and to innovate the partners’ organisations creative models in order to make welfare services an integral part of their artistic work.
