In centering our work upon the business community —places where people work, invest and learn— our approach forges an exciting new path for co-creation and inclusive growth between the creative, health and business sectors.
The Center for Creative Placehealing has three levels of engagement with business:
INDIVIDUAL CREATIVES | DEVELOPING PUBLIC HEALTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Providing intersectional (LGBTQ, African-American, Women, etc.) innovation leadership development for creatives, culture-bearers and public health scholars interested in pursuing new and emerging forms of public health entrepreneurship.
ARTS ORGANIZATIONS | SUPPORTING CREATIVE PRODUCTION WITH HEALTH RESEARCH: Building transdisciplinary research and development teams of public health researchers, humanities scholars, historians and journalists, and creative industries professionals to co-design evidence-based creative strategies with arts organizations (visual, theatre, music, dance, film) who seek to impact public health and wellbeing through creative production and presentation.
BUSINESS SECTORS | CREATING CULTURAL WELLBEING THROUGH BUSINESS: Business-engaged collaboration which leverages the power of culture to improve employee, consumer and community wellbeing while positively impacting market performance and increasing shareholder value.
