The new Creative Health Collaborations research hub at Arizona State University identifies, integrates and supports methods and approaches from the arts and design, alongside the humanities and health and social sciences, to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. We seek funding to (a) support the hubs first demonstration projectsrevolving around the needs of informal caregivers for children and adultsas proof-of-concept of our integrative approach, and (b) continue to develop and refine a useful framework to offer other university-community partnerships in arts and health research and practice. The first of these projects will assess the effects of two participatory theatre workshops on the health and well-being of family caregivers of children with special needs, partnering with Childsplay Theatre. Funding will go to participant recruitment, artist training, program materials and implementation, data analysis, and a follow-on workshop manual.
