IDEAS xLab is an artist-led organization that leverages the power of community creativity and culture to transform people's lives in support of a more healthy, just, and hopeful society. They currently work with partner sites in more than 5 states, with a predominant focus on the South and Appalachia. You can imagine IDEAS xLab's engagement with communities like a transportation roundabout. Because each community in a unique place in their health journey, IDEAS xLab can enter at different points along the route to support partners through their HEAL Community Approach - as a facilitator, capacity builder, and strategic partner. IDEAS xLab uses arts and culture interventions to identify priorities and goals for the future, and an action plan for positive change - which can include policy/advocacy and place-based solutions.
