Radical Connections

We improve care and strengthen communities by bringing artists and people in healthcare together.

Wellness, for all, involves the opportunity to play, create and make choices. People in care need those same opportunities. Participation in the arts brings joy and connection; it demonstrates that people receiving care are much more than their medical conditions.

Elder care needs radical transformation. We ensure that aging is a time when people can share their wisdom and enjoy arts and culture.

People experiencing mental or physical distress should be surrounded by healing environments. We will bring meaningful sonic, visual, literary or movement-based arts into hospitals and care settings either virtually or in person.

True creative participation humanizes care by celebrating a diversity of individuals, cultures, abilities, and communities. Connecting arts and health improves quality of life for residents, patients, visitors, and everyone working in healthcare.
