AGHCA fosters creative leadership and implements innovative, arts-based, health-oriented programs that inspire and mobilize. Our vision is to serve as an “incubator” for arts-based approaches to actionable social change, creating replicable models that challenge barriers to healthy living. Our small, passionate, and friendly team believes in the transformative power of the arts for experiential learning, cross-cultural understanding, eliciting empathy, and strengthening of community. Our three main programs focus on using Theatre for Development for health, creative participatory facilitation on human rights issues, and structured arts-based and participatory support for youth to create their own initiatives for social change. As a relatively new organization (formally established in 2013), we are focused on developing innovative and effective programming, demonstrating and learning from the results of our work, building partnerships and collaboration, and developing our systems, processes, and revenue sources to maximize our impact.
