WHO meeting on music and motherhood: health-care innovation through the arts

World Health Organization,
06 October 2023, Denmark

The Behavioural and Cultural Insights Unit at the WHO Regional Office for Europe is hosting a one-day meeting dedicated to the role of the arts in health care, featuring a multicountry pilot study titled “Music and Motherhood”. The event is a collaboration with the Jameel Arts & Health Lab, supported by Central Denmark Region.

Interweaving music, live sketches, poetry, and arts breaks with panel sessions, presentations, and collaborative group discussions, the meeting will involve a deep dive into the potential for culture and the arts to support health systems and improve health and well-being. 

Participants include cultural and health policy-makers, global experts in the field, project partners and, of course, arts practitioners: from musicians to visual artists, from dancers to poets and hospital clowns."
