Description

The Arts in Health project grant category responds to the Arts Council’s recognition that arts and culture facilitate the physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional aspects of individual healing, and that when applied to public health, promote healthy environments and policies in communities by promoting empathy, awareness, and social cohesion through shared narrative and aesthetic experiences.

The Arts in Health Grant offers two tracks to address both individual healing and public health. The Health and Healing Track supports arts projects that promote and facilitate individual health and healing through participatory arts engagement or through artist residencies. The Public Health Track supports arts activities that address public health priorities for New Hampshire communities.
