Creative Placehealing

The Center for Creative Placehealing within University of Louisvilleā€™s Commonwealth Institute of Kentucky, created in partnership with IDEAS xLab, is focused on creating a culture of health through business by leveraging the power of arts, culture, and the creative industries to frame, seed, and scale innovation. Our vision is a creative society where everyone has a fair chance to become their best self.

Every company, knowingly or unknowingly, impacts public health, and it does so in four ways: Employee; Consumer; Environment; and Community.

The Creative Placehealing model offers new cultural insights for aligning health improvement strategies with innovation across a diverse range of communities. We expand opportunities for businesses to support inclusive economic development through the dual lens of culture and health.
