As the only charitable organization in Canada that offers health education programs to all artists of all disciplines (including those behind the scenes), we empower creatives to take better care of their health, and ultimately, of their art.
AHA education programs are evidence-based and practical. Our structured learning environments are non-prescriptive and non-judgmental. We provide opportunities to explore what healthy means to each artist individually and encourage artists to connect with each other over shared struggles and shared stories.
Our workshops, classes and artist intensives are listed below and are now open for registration. If it’s not there, it’s coming soon.
You can also invite the arts medicine experts at The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre to present a workshop at your school, community group or arts organization. More information about that can be found here.
