What’s New for 2019? Creative Arts Submissions!

Similar to Fringe theater festivals throughout the world that emphasize experimental and creative performances, the Creative Arts sessions at

ICCH will use inventive, playful, and artistic methods of healthcare communication. The creative arts are a particularly suitable subject for exploring health communication because it provides an opportunity to see something a differently – a new and possibly provocative approach to the intersections between healthcare and communication. Creative Arts submissions can be of two major types: Visual Arts or Performance Arts.
