The Cultural Well-Being for the Elderly project (8 / 2021–12 / 2022) is a joint project funded by the Ministry of Education and Science and coordinated by The Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike), in which the Culture for All service partners are the Aili Network and the Theatre Center. The aim of the project is to identify and lower barriers to the cultural participation of older people and to find ways to get older people involved in culture.

The Culture for All service focuses on promoting equal participation in culture and cultural well-being of older people in a tight financial situation through the Kaikukortti activity. The Kaikukortti activity can contribute to building co-operation between social and health care and cultural actors. In addition, the project creates a basis for a nationwide approach to the development of cultural well-being aimed at the elderly.

With kind regards
