Help Healthcare Clinicians Learn through Art
Art is a way of knowing. For over 5 years our volunteer artists have created artwork to help nurses, doctors, and other healthcare clinicians learn caring practices through art. The artwork is used in exhibits and lectures to stimulate thoughtful discussion, engaging learners on a deeper level than traditional education could achieve alone. Even though our artists are volunteers, it is costly to produce the art, exhibit, and install it for display in healthcare institutions.
Using art as a way of knowing develops and nurtures caring practices in healthcare clinicians. Art transcends the written word to bring together technical understanding with emotional connection, inquiry with knowledge.
Art re-frames and distills complex problems in new ways, captures the imagination, and engages the senses.
Art challenges old ways of thinking and invites engagement to understand and empathize with one another.
Please consider supporting the creation, exhibition, installation, and display of art at UCSD Health. Thank you!
