About IDEAS xLab

Our vision is a creative society where everyone has a fair chance to become their best self! 

At IDEAS xLab - we focus our collective energy on leveraging the power of arts, culture, and the creative industries to support health and wellbeing innovation.

Taking an approach grounded in culture, and fueled by the arts, we currently support community partners in 5 sites with coaching and technical assistance, unlocking HOPE through capacity and identity development, and cross-sector community engagement. 

Since our launch in late 2012, we’ve engaged over 80 artists and more than 10 public health researchers from 6 states and 5 countries.

And, through our HEAL model, it's been tremendous to see the impact of engaging arts and culture to drive positive change, including: 

  • Working with community partners to defeat two new liquor stores from opening in Smoketown, 
  • Change from 6.3 to 9 on a 10-point scale in the ability of Meyzeek Middle School students who participated in our artist-led Justice League program to advocate for themselves and for others, and
  • Partnering with WFPL News to create the Tough and Universal: Stories of Grit podcast, featuring first-person stories from people in our community who’ve overcome some significant challenges and thrived despite the odds.

Your support will help us continue our work in 2019 and beyond!
