As a follow up to the “On The Map: Arts & Health in BC” project Arts Health BC and Arts Health Network Canada partnered with Hello Cool World to produce a ‘mini-doc’ on Arts & Health activity in BC.  The mini-doc features a range of Arts & Health initiatives and includes interviews with a few champions of Arts & Health in BC.   We hope this video will inspire dialogue and raise awareness about the role that the arts engagement can have in health care and wellbeing!
