To the next power: How true cultural partnerships can exponentially grow a hospital arts program

Organisation: 
Snow City Arts Foundation , Chicago, Illinois, USA

Snow City Arts in Chicago has been providing arts programs on pediatric wards for 11 years with a unique purpose. Most hospital-based arts programs are rooted in two different yet important models: recreation or art therapy. Snow City Arts is different in that it puts the focus on learning. As an independent nonprofit organization, it was founded on the simple premise that chronically ill children often miss extended amounts of school because of their need for medical treatments.
