On May 23rd ‘Culture Action Europe’ and RED NOSES International invited to an event as part of the current EU projects “Culture for Health” and “Clowning Connects Us”, which tool place at the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the European Union in Brussels.

The event “Culture and Mental Health – Practices and Policies” showcased how arts and culture contribute to health and wellbeing. Recent projects, publications, and research underline, that we need more investment in cultural activities for long-term health promotion and disease prevention as cultural activities can be a key contributor to a holistic mental health strategy, supporting well-being.

During the event, ClowNexus presented a movie about the project “Clowning Connects Us”, which beautifully captured the profound connections between clown artists and their audiences, including elderly individuals with dementia and children on the autism spectrum.

A big thank you to everybody joining and engaging in such inspiring conversations.
