O+ Festival was started by a dentist, a doctor, and a couple of artists – all friends – in Kingston, NY (near Woodstock). Their idea is quite simple: Artists come to the festival to perform or show their art, and are ‘paid’ with health care of all kinds ranging from physical therapy, blood tests, dentistry, eye exams and the like.
It could mark the beginning of a solution to the artist healthcare problem.
Fortunately in Italy everybody has access to the National Health Care System in case of emergency!
