The Art, Culture and Mental Health work in Bergen focuses on people´s resources, interests and potential.
An essential aim of the project is to involve creative and performing artists in work for and with individuals with mental health disorders. The target group includes persons with severe or minor mental disorders. Reducing the prevalence of prejudices about mental disorders in general is also a central task.
One of the primary aims is to stimulate increased participation in art and the arts by former and current mental patients. At the same time we seek to make available to the participants experiences, opportunities for involvement and exhibition of their creative work in various art forms.
