The National Organization for Arts in Health will host its Fourth Annual National Arts In Health Conference Oct. 19-21. This year’s virtual conference will feature three days of insights, education, discussion and connection, and promises to be one of the most timely and critical NOAH has ever held.
Designed for artists, arts administrators, healthcare professionals, designers, educators, students and anyone looking for more education related to arts in health, the conference brings together a diverse group of individuals from a broad range of healthcare and arts backgrounds to exchange ideas and build relationships.
Entitled Making Arts Integral to Health and Wellbeing, the conference will address timely topics impacting the field and focus on one theme each day: The Value of Arts in Health, Arts Programming, and Arts and Social Justice. Keynote speakers include Ping Ho, founder and director of UCLArts, Amelia Brown, founder of Emergency Arts and artist and activist Mario Torero.
In addition to networking, reconnecting with colleagues and engaging in creative activities, attendees will also get a sneak peek of the much-anticipated National Core Curriculum for artists and administrators in healthcare settings and network, a program designed to create standards and best practices accreditation programs.
Ticket prices for this year’s conference start at $250 for NOAH members, $375 for non-members and $150 for students for a three-day pass. Single-day passes are available for $100 for members and $150 for non-members, and group rates are also available for $750. NOAH is offering scholarships for socio-economically disadvantaged artists interested in learning about the field.
