The UCLA Art & Global Health Center unleashes the transformative power of the arts to advance global health. We use the arts as a tool of research, analysis, and social action to push for improved health domestically and internationally. We seek to understand and implement arts-based projects where various kinds of art and performance make concrete interventions on health issues. A large focus of our work is on holistic sexual health through our two flagship programs, AMP! and Through Positive Eyes. AMP!, also known as Sex Squad, is an arts-based sexual health education supplement to standard high school curriculum that pushes for inclusive, non-judgmental, student-led dialogue and education. University students learn about sexual health issues and then create performance work, based on Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed, that is shared with high school students. Through Positive Eyes is a participatory photography project by and for people living with HIV around the world, using photography to share their stories and fight stigma. In addition, we are partnering with the Center for Theater of the Oppressed (Rio de Janeiro) on a summer 2021 study program, on the theme of anti-racism.... Read more about 338.
