NOAH is proud to announce its second annual conference, Reimagining the Future of Arts in Health, to be held in conjunction with the 31st Healthcare Facilities and Design Symposium and Exposition (HFSE), October 8 – 10th 2018, in Austin, Texas.

This year they will be making many improvements based on the suggestions that 2017 attendees provided to us.  Some of the changes that will be implemented include TWO pre-conferences on October 7 that will focus on arts in public health and arts in healthcare management, as well as an additional space throughout the conference for participatory arts activities.

In addition to the Arts in Health track activities, conference attendees will have access to the keynotes, full breakfasts, luncheons, break refreshments, and Expo events with the attendees of the Symposium. 

Last year’s attendees said:

“It was wonderful to be able to meet and connect with peers and mentors from across the country;”

“I was energized and inspired by many of the presentations. I have come back to my program with lots of new ideas.”

Don't miss this opportunity to join leaders and peers in the field of arts in health for this opportunity to learn, share, network, and reimagine the future of arts in health!
