“Museums and Well-Being: From the Perspective of the Possibilities of Art Appreciation”
The symposium was held as a kickoff event of the new project by DNP Museum Lab and Ateneum Art Museum of the Finnish National Gallery.
The symposium consisted of two sessions; presentations and panel discussion. Six speakers made presentations on their thoughts concerning the roll of the museums and the approches to art works in our modern society, as well as the wellbeing and the effectiveness in welfare affairs achieved from art appreciation, by introducing their individual practices. During the panel discussion, opinions based on two themes were exchanged; "What is art appreciation?,""Can museums raise the level of the wellbeing?"
