Do you lead an arts & health project? Get on the map!
On The Map: Arts & Health in BC is a province-wide online survey of arts & health activity to uncover the many ways that the arts are contributing to individual, community, and population health, healing and wellbeing.
Despite growing interest and activity in arts & health, there remains a lack of understanding on the scope, location and leadership of BC-based arts & health projects. To address that information gap and facilitate networking, Arts Health BC has launched an online survey to identify arts & health initiatives in the province within health care, research, education and community settings.
The results will be used to produce a final report indexing the identified initiatives, as well as aggregate information on the arts & health sector in BC. The report will be used and promoted by Arts Health BC to bring awareness to the value of arts & health work, facilitate networking and resource sharing, and ultimately create more opportunities for British Columbians to engage with art for the health of it.
Artists, administrators, educators, health care providers, practitioners, researchers, and anyone else who leads arts & health activities in BC, are welcomed to complete the survey and forward it throughout their networks.
