ASU’s Herberger Institute receives $150,000 to develop NEA Research Lab

Description: 
Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts is among five recipients selected from across the country to receive an award to conduct a 2020 National Endowment for the Arts Research Lab. The $150,000 award supports the Creative Health Collaborations Caregiving Research Lab, which will examine the role of three art forms in three caregiving situations: how theater might support families of children with special needs; how a smartphone app designed for easy journaling can assist families of cancer patients; and how music aids families of veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
