Two-year initiative to build intersections and establish resources for practitioners

At the intersection of public health, arts and culture lies the potential for building stronger and healthier communities in America.

The University of Florida Center for Arts in Medicine in partnership with ArtPlace America is launching “Creating Healthy Communities: Arts + Public Health in America,” a two-year national initiative designed to accelerate innovation at the intersections of the arts, creative placemaking, community development, and public health.

Beginning in May 2018 and culminating in April 2020, the initiative aims to build healthy communities in alignment with national public health goals through strategic cross-sector collaboration, research, translation, and resource sharing.
