P&S For the Arts is dedicated to supporting, raising awareness of, and advocating for the visual and performing arts (including music, drama, dance, and film). P&S For the Arts is also committed to encouraging and supporting the beneficial effects of the arts in health care and the healing process.
The purpose of P&S For the Arts Club is to create an organization where students who enjoy the arts can meet other like-minded students and go out to monthly arts events together. By creating communal experiences, students will be motivated and enabled to frequent arts events. With at least 10-15 students per event, group discounts can be obtained to attend Broadway shows, concerts, museums, ballets, and operas. NYC is arguably the best place for the arts in the country, and fun, scheduled outings would be a good way for students to enjoy everything the city has to offer. The other main aspect of the club would be supporting the arts in health care. We would bring in local and national health care professionals for dinner events to discuss their use of the arts to enhance health care and healing. The club would also support and learn about current research being done in this field.
