Public Health & Wellbeing
Sing for Hope’s Public Health and Wellbeing program produces research-based creative interventions, performances, and curated cultural experiences that promote wellness and connection in healthcare centers, long-term care facilities, treatment centers, and public spaces. Our programs are designed to affect systems change and benefit individuals, organizations, and communities.
Sing for Hope’s Creative Placemaking program leverages the power of the arts to drive social cohesion, public health, and wellbeing. For example, our Quality of Commute program reaches thousands of people a day at partner sites including Union Station, Port Authority Bus Terminal, Oculus World Trade Center, Newark Liberty International Airport, and Moynihan Train Hall, delivering top-tier live arts experiences in highly trafficked public spaces. Building upon Sing for Hope’s pandemic-era role as one of the country’s leading employers of freelance musicians, the program shifts the landscape for artist employment through our innovative public-private funding model and reframes the commuting experience in urban centers.
