The Post RSVP for the Arts + Health Working Group Strategy Retreat

RSVP for the Arts + Health Working Group Strategy Retreat

Dear colleagues, 

As a follow-up to the January 2023 Arts + Health Working Group Town Hall and kickoff event, the Arts + Health Working Group is hosting an in-person strategy-planning retreat. The primary goal of this retreat is to identify funding opportunities and set strategic goals for the working group. We will produce deliverable research pursuits and plans for the next steps of working group action. This event is open to all research faculty, staff, post-docs, and students interested in growing the Arts + Health research portfolio from any discipline, subject area, department, or college. Researchers currently operating in this research space, looking for collaborators, and/or planning a response to upcoming, high-impact research opportunities related to Arts + Health research are strongly encouraged to attend. New researchers who have yet to participate in the Arts + Health Working Group are also welcome.  

Examples of potential strategic theme areas may include but are not limited to: art as medicine/wellness; arts-based health intervention/creative arts therapy; creative healthcare; artist health and wellness/health impact on artists; digital health; climate, ecology, and sustainability in A+H; community access/engagement in A+H; mindfulness and mental health in arts; arts and policy; creative aging; and more. Please note that this list is not exhaustive. Other strength areas will be explored in addition to those mentioned above. We welcome ideas for other theme areas at the retreat and encourage participants to include other ideas they have in the RSVP form!  

The retreat will take place on April 15th, 2024, from 1pm – 5pm (MST). The location will be provided to those who register. While engaged individuals may have other events or commitments during this time, we welcome your attendance for any portion of the meeting that you can make. 

Please RSVP for this in-person retreat by Monday, April 1st, 2024. RSVPs are accepted HERE 

Questions can be directed to the AVPR Office. Thank you!
