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.

The first step in this process is to create a catalog of items that meet the design elements of bioplhilic and are offered at a variety of budget options for businesses to purchase. A component of this catalog could feature local artist’s work that businesses could purchase using grant funds. Examples of biophilic design range from simple, such as potted plants to large scale water features.

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 biohpilic design in an office setting. The conversation will inspire and engage artists in our community to submit work to the catalog, as well as, provide Tammy with information on what types of art could be created to support this exploratory program.
