Healing Arts Initiative

In partnership with

WHO SDG Decade of Action E BW HR A and H NYU 5000 x 5000 px3

As the world emerges from the greatest health challenge to the human race in a century, Healing Arts is a cultural call-to-action in response to COVID-19. The initiative incorporates an international media campaign, charity auctions in partnership with Christie's, and a series of city activations advocating for improved physical, mental, and social health through the arts.

Healing Arts is produced by CULTURUNNERS in collaboration with Arts & Health @ NYU as part of the World Health Organization’s Solidarity Series of Events. The initiative was launched in 2020 as part of the United Nations' 75th Anniversary Programme (UN75).
