What is the artist’s role in creating health with communities?

Co-creating health is a concept that broadly defines individual and community health, seeking to understand a community’s goals alongside those that may be medically defined. This concept is becoming a national conversation, and one that should involve artists. “Artists Creating Health” will allow artists working across varied spaces of health an opportunity to introduce/discuss their work with a greater network of peers and those across disciplines. The goal: to expand understanding and support around the variety of ways that artists can and do engage in creating health with communities, discuss strategies to connect with and/or further work in these areas, embrace broader definitions of health and increase literacy in community-level health systems.

This FREE event, co-presented by ELNYA and the Queens Museum Open A.I.R. Artist Services Program, will include:

  • A presentation on health disparities and reform by artist and activist Robert Sember,
  • A brief panel discussion allowing up to six artists to introduce a particular project or element of their work/perspective,
  • Roundtable discussions where each panelist can go into further depth and engage others in dialogue.

This is interactive and cross-disciplinary, so we encourage you to share your thoughts, experiences, projects and ideas in the roundtables. Come and join us for an engaging and collaborative day at the Queens Museum!

*Many thanks to the Creating Health Collaborative and Stanford Social Innovation Review, who will be donating a PDF of their recent eBook, Communities Creating Health, to all attendees*

When: Sunday, November 22, 2-5:30pm
