Artists have a significant role to play in health promotion and collective and community well-being. Whether dancing with individuals with PD or multiple sclerosis, or writing poetry with child awaiting a heart transplant, artists can contribute concretely and invaluably to efforts to humanize healthcare experiences through the transformative power of the arts. This lecture offers a view of the role the arts and cultural participation can play in promoting health, extending life, enhancing quality of life and augmenting the spirit of community through social connection.
