THE FUTURE OF ARTS IN HEALTHCARE

Arts in Healthcare is a diverse, multidisciplinary field dedicated to transforming the healthcare experience by connecting people with the power of the arts at key moments in their lives. This Green Paper, submitted by the Society for the Arts in Healthcare, discusses the successes and future of this rapidly growing field that integrates the arts, including literary, performing, and visual arts and design, into a wide variety of healthcare and community settings for therapeutic, educational, and expressive purposes.

Alie Wickham became involved with the arts in healthcare field during her summer 2008 internship with the Shands Arts in Medicine program and the Center for the Arts in Healthcare Research and Education (CAHRE) at the University of Florida. Following her internship, during her final year at Hampshire College, she initiated two arts in healthcare programs in two health facilities and focused her undergraduate thesis on the interactions between hospital patients and artists in residence. After graduating from Hampshire with a BA and an emphasis on biomedicine and dance education, she moved to Gainesville, Florida, where she currently serves as Program Assistant for Shands and Certificate Program Coordinator for CAHRE.  Alie is also an active member of the Membership, Awards, and Building Task Force committees for the Society for the Arts in Healthcare and was featured in the Society’s first Student Quarterly View in fall 2009.
