Evidence-based engagement is at the core of our arts for collective impact model. We are collaborating with researchers, academics, professional associations and university faculties to to track and evaluate outcomes associated with the initiatives we support. A fund has been created to allow practitioners and researchers alike to obtain evidence-informed data demonstrating the ways in which the arts can bring positive health, social and economic outcomes to underserved youth and their communities. The grant offers up to $20,000 each year to a research team, which must include a family physician, to study the interface of health, wellbeing, and the social determinants of health.
