           We have robust bodies of research about how the arts can improve our lives, from individual health through communities recovering from traumatic incidents. Createquity offers us a comprehensive overview of the present state of research. Gradually–too slowly for me–the arts are being integrated into health care in formal and informal ways. The great children’s hospitals are in the forefront of integrating all the arts into both the physical setting and treatment protocols, while arts areas such as dance are being used to treat people with Parkinson’s disease. For both individuals and communities, the arts are life-enhancing and central to wellness.

Read…Explore…Reflect…Learn…Share!

“The research could still use an upgrade in many areas. But what we know so far should cheer any arts advocate.”
