The 2019 Sping Policy Academy, Reducing Inequities in Health & Well-being by Addressing Structural Racism in the U.S., took place on April 17th. For this Policy Academy, the Partnership for Arts and Culture (PAC) partnered with the Partnership for Healthy Communities (PHC) with the goal of gathering cross sector representatives to share in the mission of promoting health equity by addressing structural racism. PAC addressed how art and culture contributes to a healthy community by providing members of the community with a means of communication and healing. The lunch program featured dance performances from Sharing Our Legacy Dance Theatre and a presentation from Colin Miller, Director of Global Art for the College of Arts and Sciences and PAC Grant Recipient, on his Prison Music project. The lunch program concluded with an interactive dialogue between dancers from the performance, Colin Miller, and PAC community partner Michael Kalmbach, Founding Director of the Creative Vision Factory.
