to face illness and heal and live with
hope. I am not alone on this journey.”
Around the world, the arts are finding their way into healthcare settings in ever more diverse ways.
Patients, their families, staff, direct care providers, administrators and those protecting the financial bottom-line, are discovering that there are a variety of real benefits to this. The Montana Arts Council has embarked on an online survey project to inventory the state of the arts and healthcare in Montana to determine where our technical and financial assistance might best be directed. We will survey artists, arts organizations, medical direct-care providers and administrators of healthcare settings separately.
As an Artist, Direct Care Provider, Administrator of a Montana healthcare facility, or Arts Organization, we will be inviting you to participate in this research. Your inside help is key to establishing an accurate picture of our state and we would appreciate your assistance and expertise. The first two online surveys, for Artists and Arts Organizations, are now open for responses. The remaining Direct Care Provider and Healthcare Administrator surveys will follow soon. The online survey will take approximately 10-12 minutes and all responses will be anonymous.

The Gene D. Cohen Award, sponsored by the National Center for Creative Aging (NCCA), recognizes and honors the seminal work of Dr. Gene Cohen, whose research in the field of creativity and aging has shifted the conceptual focus from a problem paradigm to one of promise and potential. Dr. Cohen has inspired us to approach longevity asking what wonders can be achieved, not in spite of age, but because of age. The award is presented annually to a professional whose research in the field of creativity and aging demonstrates these positive attributes.
