Artists to the Rescue: Collaborating to Improve Health Care

Led by practitioner and academic Helen Vatsikopoulos, our 2022 VIVID Ideas panel 'Artists to the Rescue' explored the many ways art can be used to communicate complex community and social issues. During our engaging panel discussion, we examined what happens when we apply a creative lens to challenges such as boosting the well-being of children from refugee backgrounds, creating healthy urban environments, improving palliative care, mental health and addiction.

 

Did you miss the event? No stress! Here is Professor Katherine Boydell talking about the research-to-practice gap, and the myriad of ways our artist-in-residence group work alongside our SPHERE CAGs and consumers.
