The Institute for Creative Health is an independent non-profit Australian organisation with the mission to prove that the arts, in all its guises, are essential to the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. She has experience in art museum and health care settings and holds an MA in Art History from USF, an MS in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an MA in Medical/Clinical Psychology from UAB. In November 2015 the NSW Minister for Health announced a Taskforce on Health and The Arts to provide advice on how to both encourage and better integrate The Arts into healthcare services, activities and facilities across the whole of NSW Health. Although there is evidence that art-based interventions are effective in reducing adverse physiological and psychological outcomes, the extent to which these interventions enhance health status is largely unknown.
Its National Grants Programme is inviting applications from organisations working with musicians across the UK. Successful applicants will receive between £5,000 and £40,000 in funding over a three-year period. Publishing activities at IJCAIP have contributed significantly to propagating a new and fertile knowledge base for research and information about the creative arts in interdisciplinary practice. I was thrilled to be asked to speak at their first major conference this week at the University of Nottingham. Two other visual arts studies have focused on the experience of women with cancer.
This conference will explore the contrasts and commonalities between theoretical perspectives, research methods and professional practice in creative arts therapies, medical/health humanities and arts, health and wellbeing. Art can create more intimate, calming and uplifting environments, contributing to improved health and wellbeing outcomes and bringing real benefits to patients, staff and visitors. One of the lead organisations is ArtsCare, which currently has 20 artists in residence and seven Clown Doctors working in health venues throughout Northern Ireland. Of interest, is that all five of us met at art school back in 1970-1973, in East London, South Africa, and have been friends ever since.

In addition to making you a strong applicant when applying to a health professions program, the arts and humanities may become even more important to you once you start practicing in your chosen field. Most importantly, we connected with colleagues that share in our vision of all arts contributing to a healthier New Jersey! The link between art and health is now recognised to be a social process requiring new and fundamental research.
Join us at our Crowdfunding: Essential Tips for Artists and Arts Organizations workshop with Nancy Kenny on November 2 in Toronto. ARHL540: Program Administration, Management, and Assessment in Arts and Health (3cr) -This course shapes the complex strategies and skills that are required in launching, administering and assessing a successful arts and health program. Themes ranged from medicine in archaeology to the role of women in new life science, and from health in the developing world to frailty and memory. Online: Foundations of Art and Health is a fully online unit, designed to provide you with a broad view of arts based approaches to health and well-being. On this occasion I had a dream about a hospital on top of a mountain where the poorest people had no access to healthcare. Whilst social and other health scientists have demonstrated various positive correlations in this area, the underlying causal mechanisms remain to be explored.
