KEYNOTE: Research: Unpacking Opportunities for Researcher/Practitioner Partnerships in Arts and Health
The National Endowment for the Arts has modeled cross-sectoral and transdisciplinary research collaborations at the federal level—notably in the arts and health. Some of these programs and their resulting publications offer a template for local and regional efforts. Examples of such assets include the Sound Health partnership, the Interagency Task Force on the Arts and Human Development, Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network, and the NEA Guide to Community-Based Research on the Arts and Health. Sunil Iyengar will review these resources and then explain the goals and accomplishments of the NEA Research Labs program and other research funding opportunities that can incentivize meaningful partnerships between arts organizations and academic researchers studying the arts’ relationship to health and well-being.
