The National Organization for Arts in Health is proud to announce the 6th Annual International Arts in Health Awards Program. A highlight of our annual conference, the Awards program acknowledges the innovations and accomplishments of our colleagues and illuminates their important work. 

The awards are open to NOAH members: individual artists working in all disciplines, or arts in health programs or projects in a healthcare facility or community setting. Submissions should demonstrate how the project or program has measurably improved the health or wellbeing of the intended population. Any individual or group may nominate themselves or another party. These awards are open to individuals and institutions in both the US and internationally.

“NOAH’s recognition of our Unbound project in 2022 with a Cam Busch first place award for Arts for Innovation has given us credibility with local and state health and human services departments and hospitals in California, which is critical to furthering our work.  For me personally, this recognition of my passion project deeply affirmed my vision of community healing through art and the value of my work in the arts in health field.  Receiving this honor also brought us to the attention of the NOAH community and its top professionals.  Through these connections, we began working with consultants who have advised and worked for the National Endowment for the Arts and are guiding our next big project.

Receiving the NOAH award conferred immediate validation and professionalism to our organization, which I feel played a large role in us securing both a county and federal grant for our work this past year.  NOAH’s acknowledgment was an incredible gift for Life On Earth Art as a start-up arts non-profit and has truly boosted our launch into the world.”

-Tracy Ferron, Founder and Board Chair of Life on Earth Art
