Les arts et la santé : partenaires du mieux-être (presented in French only)

Date: Thursday, February 25, 2016
Time: 11:00-12:00 (EST)
Presenter: Frédéric Julien, CAPACOA

Patrick Delorme, HC Link


THIS WEBINAR IS PRESENTED IN FRENCH -- There is no doubt that physical activity is good for your health; the relationship between cultural activity and health however, still remains unrecognized or underestimated. Many studies conducted here in Canada and elsewhere have brought to light a series of links between an active cultural life and a number of health indicators.

This webinar is intended for public health and primary health care workers as well as workers from the cultural sector. It will offer:

  • an introduction in the interdisciplinary domain of arts and health;
  • an overview of research showing links between artistic practice and health;
  • mechanisms that might explain the relationship between arts and health;
  • ideas and resources which could help both health and arts sectors to take advantage of each other.


This webinar is co-presented by:
