Event description

Description

We are thrilled to have Jill Humphries from the Artist Health Aliance here from Toronto to talk about the Alliance and how the Arts enabele wellness. We would like to explore how this type of initiative might be applied to the Capital Region. This four hour session will include lunch. We hope you can attend and please register early as we only have 20 spaces open.

In 1997, a group of artists came together committed to enhancing the wellbeing of professional performing and creative artists as well as students in, and teachers at, recognized post-secondary arts institutions. The Artists’ Health Alliance (formerly the Artists’ Health Centre Foundation) was formed, with a vision of creating a centre for holistic treatment and comprehensive health education and outreach.

The Alliance works in partnership with The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre to ensure the needs of the artistic community are being met, and is accomplished through ongoing communication with the arts community, the Christine Ardagh Education & Outreach Program, Needs Assessment Surveys and the work of the Artists’ Committee.

The Alliance is also responsible for management of the Joysanne Sidimus Fund, with funding available through the Centre, for artists of limited financial means.

VISION - To empower artists of all disciplines with accessible, innovative and integrative healthcare, so they may enrich our society.
