Public Health Madison/Dane County AND Developing Artists, Murals & Alliances
Public Health Mural Exhibit
December 2, 2023 - January 17, 2024
Reception Date: TBD
At the start of 2020, Public Health Madison and Dane County and their community Steering Committee had just completed data collection on the Community Health Assessment (CHA) when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, putting the work on pause. In 2023, they finally completed the CHA data analysis and report, but wanted to do something creative to get people excited about the next phase of work; the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP), enter Developing Artists Mural Alliance (DAMA). Over the summer and fall of 2023, Public Health, partners, DAMA, and community members came together to collaborate on seven unique murals to highlight the CHIP priorities:
-Access to Mental Health Care
-Racial Diversity and Inclusion
Now, the community can learn more about the CHA process, our mural making process, the CHIP priorities and their connections to health, and what’s next for the CHIP by viewing the completed murals in Garver Canvas throughout December and January.
