Arts in Health Practitioner

Artist and Health Education Specialist exploring the impact of art and culture on health and health research for public health and social justice

With a social justice as public health approach to her work, Saharra is passionate about the arts’ ability to heal, inspire, and foster change across cultures and lifespans. Similarly, she’s fascinated with the arts’ ability to dismantle systems of oppression and tackle social inequities in health.

Within the arts lies a powerful but largely untapped force for healing. The arts and science are two sides of the same coin, which is our shared humanity. Our ability to live fulfilling, healthy lives depends on bringing these two forces together
