AHA! is a collaboration between the local arts community and the local health community, which began in January 2013 with a recognition of a need to acknowledge, value and respect the immense contribution of the cultural sector to the community vitality, vibrancy and health. AHA! recognizes and encourages the relationship between creativity and wellness and has been developing arts-based programming for those on a journey to enhanced health, wellness and quality of life.

“Art taps, for each of us, whatever our circumstances, a deep well of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is indispensable to our lives, and to our total health.” Dr. John Graham-Pole
