Arts For Life puts creativity, discovery, and joy into the hands and hearts of children who need it the very most.
Every day across North Carolina, the Arts For Life teams of staff members, volunteers, interns, and teaching fellows brighten the lives and healthcare experiences
of children and families facing serious illnesses and disabilities. By bringing visual art, music, and creative writing programs into hospitals and clinics, they help children and teens remember that they’re not just patients: they’re artists, musicians, and poets, with a world of possibility at their fingertips.
Arts For Life is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing arts in health programs to transform healthcare experiences for pediatric patients and their families. Arts For Life currently serves four communities in North Carolina, including Duke Children’s Hospital in Durham, Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem, Mission Children’s Hospital in Asheville, and Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.
