Thanks to the vision of the late Katie Adams Hodge, who brought Healing Arts to our community, Spartanburg Regional Foundation’s Healing Arts program was established to enhance the health and well-being of patients and their families through music, dance, and visual art. The Healing Arts Program provides a creative and calming environment and takes the healing process beyond just medicine.
This program uses the arts in various ways to help patients heal or make a significant improvement in their medical condition. Art can help with pain management as well as reduce anxiety and stress. While one person may work with paint and brushes, another might be involved in performing arts as a way to get back on the road to recovery. The Healing Arts program is offered in several locations throughout our service area and in partnership with other organizations.
