Arts Management & Health | Arts Management Quarterly Publication

Since the pandemic, the topic of „health” has received extremely heightened attention – also in the arts and cultural sector. The fact that arts, culture and health are more closely related than one might initially assume is not only evident from the hygiene measures with which cultural institutions are supposed to help contain the pandemic. For example, cultural institutions also played an important role in spreading vaccination campaigns in certain regions of the world.

But even before COVID-19 and beyond, there have been various points of contact between art, culture and health: for example, visits to museums prescribed by doctors or cooperation between cultural institutions and hospitals are no longer uncommon. Likewise, various art forms have proven their worth as therapeutic measures. But the topic of „health management” and corresponding measures must also gain importance in the arts and cultural institutions themselves. After all, in order for employees in the arts and cultural sector to feel good, they must first and foremost be healthy – both physically and mentally.
