International Congress on Culture, Health and Well-being
Turku 21.09.2011  - 21.09.2011 

We have a great pleasure to invite you to the International Congress
on Culture, Health and Well-being (CultWell), to be held in Turku,
Finland, on 21-24 September 2011. Turku is the European Capital of
Culture 2011 and the conference is part of its programme. Welcome to
this unique conference!

The relationship between culture, health and well-being is extremely
diverse. Culture, health and well-being are all crucial elements of
the complex, extending from medicine and health promotion to broad
cultural aspects of creativity and social well-being. The aims of
this congress are to (1) explore the link between culture, health and
well-being, (2) identify methodological possibilities of the field,
(3) consider what constitutes well-being, healthy life, and
happiness, (4) share best practices involving culture and health to
improve well-being and (5) promote Artists' health and well-being.
This congress creates an interdisciplinary and dialogical platform
for people interested in these topics. Fields of interest include
medicine, pedagogy, psychology, urban studies, art research, cultural
studies, philosophy, social sciences and the health and culture
sectors at large. All these diverse disciplines are crucial to the
comprehensive understanding of the issues of culture and health which
we wish to achieve in this unique conference. All researchers and
practitioners who have been or are working with culture, health and
well-being are most welcome to help shed light on the issues
surrounding health and culture.
