Lunchbox Series: Arts, Activism and Public Health with Nancy Epstein and Clara Pinsky
April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm
Community-based arts have long exposed and addressed root causes of ill health, such as poverty, social inequality and structural racism, and provided creative strategies for protest, resistance, and change. In today’s world, they are more vital than ever for promoting public health. Join Professor Nancy Epstein of Drexel University’s Dornsife School of Public Health and Drexel graduate student Clara Pinsky for a discussion of their work in the growing field of arts in public health. Learn about how Drexel is pioneering a new, interdisciplinary graduate minor in arts and health, hear innovative project examples from the field of community-based dance, and join in reflection on how artists can play an essential role in promoting public health, social justice, and equity.
