February 2015 Arts Around the Fire

wood-fireWednesday, February 18th, 2015 6-8pm.
Jessica Walsh and Ben Ellcome talked about a new project of the Women’s Resource Center which would use the lens of access to the arts and culture as a key factor influencing the health of two Newport neighborhoods as part of an initiative of the RI Dept of Health. The WRC has included the arts in its 6 areas of inquiry as it explores the social and environmental determinants of health. As part of the proposed project, the Arts & Cultural Alliance will lead the Arts and Culture Assets and Needs Working Group. Participating in this public health initiative represents an important recognition of the arts as an integral part of a healthy life. How does access to the arts affect your well-being?
