ArtsEqual policy brief: expanding the percent for art principle



 

People in care institutions have limited opportunities to benefit from art and cultural services and the wellbeing they contribute to. This is one reason why the reach of these services needs to be extended to the social welfare and healthcare sectors. This could be done by expanding the currently employed percent for art principle. It would serve to create more equal opportunities for all people to participate in the arts and culture.

ArtsEqual policy brief "Enhancing wellbeing in social welfare and healthcare services by expanding the percent for art principle" offers latest research information and critical perspectives on the realization of cultural rights and cultural welfare and supports the extending of the percent for art principle in accordance with the program of the current Finnish government.
