Welcome to Our Community!

The arts have long provided emotional context for the human experience. Now, research is demonstrating that creative expression also contributes to better health and wellbeing. People from all walks of life and every corner of the planet are expressing themselves through the arts—musical, performance, visual, writing, culinary—and discovering how it reduces the physical and emotional burden associated with various types of health conditions and life circumstances.  Join us, along with those in healthcare and the arts, as we find out how, why, and when this important transformation occurs in order help all who might benefit.  Together, we can make Art powerful Medicine.
