The pandemic has had an undeniable impact on health care delivery and the way we address public health in our communities, resulting in the need to design new models for public well-being in shared spaces. As health systems and businesses alike seek ways to mitigate the spread of the virus, many have turned to leaders in our creative economy to develop human-centered strategies for the day-to-day challenges of social distancing and other, more long-term, endeavors to improve health care outcomes.
Join us as we explore the intersection of design and health, examining solutions implemented by local artists, designers, and creatives that set out to beautify social distancing, inspire innovation across the health care industry, and illustrate the role of the creative economy in combatting COVID-19 and confronting the unique challenges presented to businesses around the world.
