ARTery Arts & Health Society

The mission of ARTery Arts and Health Society is to support the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of individuals of all abilities, patients and residents of long-term care, hospitals, and populations affected by gender-based violence by engaging patients, families and staff in creative arts programs that promote well-being and build community. 

The team at ARTery engages with the person and remind them of their lives beyond their dis/ease or trauma offering them opportunities to make choices, be creative and be part of a creative community. 

Their vision is that all patients in hospitals will have an opportunity to explore their own creativity through our projects and in doing so, transforming the healthcare experience into a place of healing. 

They hope to advance education by providing instructional seminars on the use of arts in​ promoting health to students, healthcare workers and artists.
