Social Cohesion & Well-Being: A New Report

WE-Making: How Art + Culture Unite People to Work Toward Community Well-Being, is a newly published, multi-faceted report—created in collaboration with Metris Arts Consulting, PolicyLink, the Center for Arts in Medicine (CAM)—that synthesizes research from different areas of study along with on-the-ground experiences of artists and researchers, practitioners in community development, and advocates for health equity. The report demonstrates that place-based arts and cultural practices, or creative placemaking, can help grow social cohesion to encourage community well-being.
