Pia Houni: Impacts of the Arts on Equality and Well-being


The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health research group studies how art increases well-being and promotes equality and participation. We will also monitor the affectivity of the ArtsEqual project nationally after the actual activities. The group is aiming to establish the criteria for well-being as well as the subjects' self-definitions.
