Partnership Opportunities around Well-being & Art Installations
The Center for Population Health at Cheshire Medical Center is exploring a program to support the integration of natural elements into worksite through Biophilic Design. “Biophilia”, the theory that connection with the natural environment improves wellbeing, is the foundation of this program. This program is an extension of an existing program, Wellpowered Worksites, which provides local employers support, resources and grants to improve the wellbeing of their employees.
Tammy Dwyer, from the Center for Population Health, will give a brief talk on biophilic design. Taryn Fisher will then host a discussion between three artists who work in different media to share ideas on how their work could be integrated into biophilic design in an office setting. The conversation will inspire and engage artists in our community, as well as, provide the Wellpowered Worksites program with information on what types of art could be created to support this exploratory program.
