This Giving Tuesday, Paint the World is raising money to renew our "Art in the ER" program. EVERY little bit counts and will help us support the mental health of hospital staff across the country 🏥
Because... caring for the mental health of our healthcare workers so clearly leads to higher quality care 🩺 To learn more about why we believe this, read through our case study from the first time we ran this program in 2020: https://painttheworld.com/giving-frontline-heroes-tools-to-make-art/
About Paint the World:
There is proven value in what we can learn as a society from facilitating artistic experiences on a collective level. Paint the World has the core (now-evidenced) belief that a blank canvas has the power to unlock dormant creativity, tap into a community’s collective consciousness, enhance innovative problem-solving skills and provide a unique vantage point into the heart of the world.
Paint the World's programs have two primary objectives:
1. To increase creative confidence and collaborative problem solving capacity of the collective
2. To provide a visual window of understanding into the community of participants
We work with local centers, establishments, schools, hospitals, etc, to strategically locate blank canvas set ups (with art supplies) in community spaces. The blank canvas installation is purposefully secured without attached directions and attracts participants of all ages and demographics; the majority of participants have never painted before, and usually initially perceive their contribution as an experiment, but ultimately experience a significant increase in creative confidence. The resulting collaborative paintings are analyzed by a committee of Jungian analysts and local community advisors. We utilize the insight collected from the paintings to formulate a better understanding of the communities that spontaneously gathered to create them. Finished collaborative paintings are then auctioned at community story-telling events and funds raised support a continuous cycle of blank canvas installations within the same community.
