FREE ROUNDTABLE June 18: The Intersection of Art and Health

IdeasXLab are coming to Denver on Monday, June 18th to bring together artists and health folks from around the state for what they call a HOPEBOX Health Roundtable. 
IDEAS xLAB
Culture is integral to the definition, creation, and measurement of health and wellbeing across diverse communities. IDEAS xLab brings together the creative industries with health sector and government leaders to develop community-centered, culturally-responsive, design approaches to health improvement. We frame generative discussions and prototypes with a bias towards collective action and equity.
As cultural producers, organizers, and innovators, we build strategies that focus on health improvement as a co-creation effort between communities and public/private health sector organizations. In this effort, language and trust are often barriers that must be overcome first, in order for progress to be made.
Co-creating work, analyzing language, building trust -- these are standard tools of many poets, theatre companies, musicians, and other artists. IDEAS xLab combines these creative tools with science and transforms them into powerful strategies for population health and resiliency.
