Art Can Heal Montreal (ACHM)
We are a collective group of oncology patients and their loved ones, creative arts therapists, arts-based researchers and artists affiliated with Cedars CanSupport/McGill University Health Centre Oncology departments. We encourage all forms of art-making, crafting, and creative arts therapies that inspire and heal following an illness diagnosis, during and following treatments, and in end-of-life care.
As a community hub for people living with cancer, their loved ones, and their health practitioners, ACHM facilitates art-making on a personal, collective and community level. We organize and curate open exhibits, as well as art-based supportive spaces and other wellbeing projects. We are also involved in several research studies to better understand how creative processes and supportive spaces benefit those affected by cancer. In addition, members of ACHM are developing a blog sharing treatment-friendly recipes and a variety of artworks made by patients and supporters. Art exhibits, research, presentations, and an online presence provide an empowering opportunity for our patients to share aspects of their journey. The larger community, in turn, has an opportunity to witness and better understand patient experiences.
