Project Imagine is Cure 4 The Kids Foundation’s new, exclusive, Arts in Medicine Program. It is designed to enhance the quality of life for our children by encouraging creative expression. Arts in medicine help children who are undergoing extensive treatments to alleviate pain, anxiety and feelings of isolation that can often accompany prolonged illnesses. By providing one-on-one and group art and music enrichments sessions, Project Imagine seeks to create an experience that will allow our patients a chance to step outside their circumstances and explore their creativity.
We inspire art, music, dance, theater and literary exploration, with the knowledge that these actions can aid in treatment success and bring comfort to our kids, their families and caregivers.
ART | Project Imagine’s team of resident artists conduct art enrichment sessions at the bedside of your patients during their visit. Children choose their medium and are encouraged to use the power of their imagination to create the art that will be the legacy of their creativity, insight and vision.
MUSIC | Using the healing power of music, our resident musicians provide music enrichment sessions to help brighten the day! Young patients are provided with instruments and encouraged to express their personal style through music and are able to explore different instruments such as piano, guitar, African drums, tambourines, maracas and much more.
THEATER | Sometimes, our kids have limited access to the arts and the magic of theater due to their condition. Our programming provides our patients and their families with a transformative experience, enabling them to experience a high-quality arts performance, where an emphasis upon the imagination art of narrative and storytelling, can re-invent the clinical space.
PHOTOGRAPHY | This experience is unique and tailored around education and exploration. Discussions about the history, composition and color begin each session. The children are given their own camera and are encouraged by different verbal prompts to build their craft. The results are extraordinary!
