In this capacity building project we investigate the practices of well-being residencies in Finland, Russia, Latvia and Sweden. We will build individualised toolsets for each partner organisation and a general methodology for a well-being residency practice. This is done in collaboration with artists, art organisations and social and health care professionals, locally and internationally.

Online conference in August!
