about aihom

Art heals, science proves it.

Arts in Health Ocala Metro (AIHOM) is a non-profit organization that connects art and healing. Our practice includes music, dance, performing and visual arts led by artists who serve our community through participant-led artmaking. While we are not art therapists, our artist practitioners utilize our powerful human connection with the arts to ease suffering, reduce pain and create overall wellbeing. We do this by distributing free art kits, sponsoring music classes for veterans at the Ocala Symphony Community Music Conservatory, traveling to underserved communities to create art, and much more.

Get Involved in the Healing Power of Art

We need volunteers to assist our arts in health practitioners in many ways, including inside hospitals and in our community. Volunteers may work with adults, children or both. 

Volunteers will assist with Arts in Health Workshops, help artists with reporting, complete administrative work such as helping with referrals, and even assisting in public performances for Arts in Health.

Taking over two years of thoughtful planning and consideration, AIHOM seeks to bring artists and community members together to experience the positive effects of the arts on our wellbeing.
