What impact does art have on health promotion?
What effect does culture have on physical and mental well-being?
Can art relieve physical and emotional tension?
Faro's Candidature to become the European Capital of Culture (faro2027), in partnership with the Algarve University Hospital Centre (CHUA) and the Association 289 developed the “Art for Health” project.
The “Art for Health” project aims to promote the physical and emotional well-being of all the health professionals who, over the last two years, have been involved in the tough fight against the pandemic. The initiative counts on the participation of five plastic artists who, until March 2022, will exhibit their works in the cafeteria of the Algarve University Hospital Centre.
This group show thus includes works by Gustavo Jesus, Milita Doré, Régis Vincent, Fernando Sampaio Amaro and Leandro Marcos, artists who voluntarily and and gratuitously joined Faro2027 in this initiative. The Art for Health project was inspired by the initiative "Un quadr al mese: lártein ospedale" developed in the COVID Hospital OGR ASL, in Italy, in the city of Torino.
