Foundation For Art & Healing – “Can Art Be Medicine?” (Short)

In recent years there has been increased interest in the relationship between art and healing in the medical world.

There has been a similar focus within the arts community. Often based on their personal experience with illness, painters, dancers, sculptors, writers, and arts educators have also realized the power of the creative process to heal body and mind.

Unfortunately, most patients are often left on their own to develop these coping skills. Since health is a fundamental personal and social asset, it is essential that outreach and support programs devoted to healing, or the restoration and maintenance of good health, be more fully integrated into the fabric of the community.

The Foundation for Art and Healing (FAH) will bridge the gap to synthesize the medical and humanistic perspective of the healing process and transport it into community settings.

Awakened Films produced this documentary short for The Foundation for Art & Healing to help raise awareness of the deep connection between the creative process and the healing process. I am grateful to Dr Jeremy Nobel and Deborah Obalil, who were instrumental in the funding process as well as keeping this piece moving forward in the best possible direction.
