ARTISTS Training

Creative Agents of Change Foundation ("CAC" - a 501c3 non-profit based in Louisville, KY) provides education, information, support and advocacy for artists interested in working in ALL PARTS of the health sector from community-based social justice programs to increase health equity to technology/data projects with large national healthcare insurers. Our aim is to encourage the development of artists as social entrepreneurs -- catalysts who make new options visible for a health sector undergoing large scale transformation.  Our training shows artists how to use their artistic practice to support equitable places and to nurture healthy, compassionate people through a health in all policies approach to collective action.
