Who We Are
The Foundation for Art & Healing brings people together to help communities improve health and well-being by using creative arts expression as a catalyst for public health.
We are a nonprofit organization that mobilizes partners and the public to embrace the arts as a proven path towards improved personal and public health. Rooted in medicine and science, we develop practical applications for creative expression to remedy national health concerns.
We’re fortunate to have a robust coalition of arts, health, media, and policy luminaries that contribute to our organization’s mission and activate the health improving qualities of the arts.
Our Board is comprised of a diverse team of experts who inform the Foundation’s strategic vision and increase our capacity to help communities apply creative expression as a path towards improved health and well-being.
We collaborate with national and local organizations to tailor our creative expression programs for their communities. Our community partners, which come from across the country and span a variety of fields, create opportunities and conditions that improve health and help their participants thrive.
Our team is committed to addressing urgent health concerns and improving community well-being. We are a small, nimble team that is enthusiastic about using creativity to make measurable impact for our partners and the public.
The health of our communities is interconnected/shared, and no one person or organization is responsible alone. We are grateful to our supporting organization partners that join us in advocating for the evidence-based improvements the arts impart upon personal and public health.
