Health Equity and Arts (HEArts) Year Two

February 7, 2020

Few people have a clear understanding or vision of equity. It is a difficult concept to define, and harder still to explain in terms of what it means to have equity in our communities. When RMHF launched the Health Equity and Arts (HEArts) program in 2017, our Trustees and team knew that artists could play a crucial role in elevating the conversation about health equity in the Richmond region, helping people understand how life expectancy and health and wellbeing can vary dramatically from neighborhood to neighborhood. Over the past two years, on paper and canvas, in streets and on stages and in conversations and classes, RMHF HEArtists have advanced health equity and unleashed the imagination of our community.
