Our mission

We are striving to create a vibrant, collaborative creative arts therapy community that is committed to enhancing healthcare professional well-being and alleviating psychological stress in the workplace and beyond.

Our vision

We encourage healthcare providers to find a creative outlet, build their identity, and establish a sense of community through the arts. By creating a more engaged workforce, we can support healthcare professionals in their efforts to improve patient outcomes, enhance patient and family satisfaction, and reduce healthcare costs.
