SEVILLE / September 15 – 17,  2016

The activity of caring is an inherently human activity. Over the last five years, the international conference on “Health Humanities” has explored several topics related to how the arts and humanities can be used with the aim of improving the health and wellbeing of all human beings. To date, within the organisation of the conference “International Health Humanities Network” an exciting interdisciplinary dialogue has been generated across different communities of academics, health professionals, clinics, artists, informal caregivers, service users, family-members and patients. In this conference, the creative practises based on the arts, architecture and the humanities were specifically explored with the aim of providing innovative care practises for professionals, non-professionals and self-care.

The Healthy Architecture & City research group has participated with the contribution:
