The European Commission has published the report “The Health and Wellbeing of Professional Musicians and Music Creators in the EU – insights from research for policy and practice”. The report is one of the actions of “Music Moves Europe” initiative, which is the framework for EU actions in support of the European music sector.
The report reveals that the health and well-being of professional musicians and music creators in the EU is vulnerable to several risk factors and that action on many fronts is needed in order to protect them.
While the document highlights the main risks for the physical and mental health of professional musicians and music creators, it also gives examples of successful interventions and actions (policies and practices) from several EU Member States to address these risks.
It distils key policy lessons from research and provides recommendations for policies and practices that can improve the physical and mental health and safety of musicians and music creators in the EU in terms of education, prevention and treatment.
