In development: Inclusive arts and long-term care study

Jun 30, 2021 | Uncategorized

A big H’art Centre welcome to Amanda Ball and Lauren McKinley, two field placement students from the Occupational Therapy program at the School of Rehabilitation Therapy at Queen’s University. This summer they will dig into our outreach program called H’art Accessible Arts Program (HAAP). They will do some research, and develop a presentation about ways to make inclusive arts accessible and available to seniors in long-term care homes. But first they are getting to know us a little better. We look forward to sharing the results of their study this Fall.

HAAP has delivered high-quality inclusive arts programming that emphasizes increased opportunities for inclusion. Everyone is welcome and no art experience is necessary. The facilitators strive to create a meaningful, inclusive environment for all participants where creativity is fostered in a supportive and positive space. HAAP instructors believe it is never too late for an individual to engage in the arts, learn something new or master a skill.
