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! is an arts-based sexual health education supplement to high school curriculum that pushes for inclusive, non-judgmental, student led dialogue and education. Students (university and high school) learn about sexual health issues and then create Theater of the Oppressed performance work that is shared with high school students. Through Positive Eyes is a participatory photography project working with people living with HIV around the world to use photography to share their stories and fight stigma. In a new initiative, we are partnering with the Center for Theater of the Oppressed (Rio de Janeiro) to use Legislative Theater (a form of Theater of the Oppressed) for anti-racist action in Los Angeles. ...
