What is “Arts and Health?”

Kira Tozer (@kiratozer) for Arts Health Network Canada (@artshealthca) explains  her Canadian network’s efforts to develop intersections with art and health in this post What is “Arts and Health?”

The arts and health can intersect in many different ways, with different aims and outcomes. The arts can help us to understand, communicate and cope with various experiences of human illness – be it our own or a loved one’s, a patient’s or a provider’s.  The arts help to reconnect us with the human element of health and health care.
