CHI Memorial Foundation will host the 20th Annual Cam Busch Arts for Health Series in partnership with the Hunter Museum of American Art on Thursday, March 18, 2021, 5 – 7:30 p.m.

The featured guest speaker is Eric Booth. In 2015, Eric was given the nation’s highest award in arts education, and was named one of the 25 most influential people in the arts in the U.S. He began as a Broadway actor and is an author, with most recent publications, Playing for Their Lives and Tending the Perennials. He has been on the faculty of Juilliard, Tanglewood, The Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Center Education. He serves as a consultant for many arts organizations, including seven of the ten largest U.S. orchestras, cities, states, medical organizations, and businesses around the U.S., as well as senior advisor to many arts organizations around the world. A frequent keynote speaker, he founded the International Teaching Artist Conferences—the world's first network of artists who work in schools and communities. In 2018, he launched the ITAC Collaborative, a year-round program building a global network of artists who work in community and educational settings.

“The arts tell the stories of human experience in an endless profusion of ways, and they ingeniously invite others to hear, to enter them, and to be connected…this is where the arts become essential to human health.” – Eric Booth – Empathetic Entry into the Stories of Others
