The Federal Reserve Bank of New York, in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, hosted a discussion focused on artists' role in building an equitable economy and their influence on community health and wellbeing on November 20, 2020 via Webex.
The webinar explored the intersection of arts and culture, community investments, and healthy communities. Creative and arts-based strategies are central to community development and can support investments that strive for equitable and durable long-term health outcomes. Speakers included leaders striving to invest their capital in an upstream approach to health care through arts, artists as catalysts of change in communities, and academia providing current research on the connection between arts and health.
