New Art Horizons provides expert and personalized consulting services for the design and delivery of creative arts programming in a variety of settings, including healthcare, educational, and community-based organizations. With a specialization in aging, and over 25 years of experience innovating and developing programs, our expertise includes: creating meaningful partnerships among stakeholders, relationship management, securing talent, artist and staff training, teambuilding, implementation, evaluation, identifying revenue streams, sustainability, and scaling. We offer services to a full range of stakeholders including community-based organizations (CBO’s), healthcare institutions, corporations, foundations, academia and research.

Whether transforming the healthcare experience by integrating the arts into healthcare design, strengthening the learning experience through prescribed multidisciplinary arts projects that help meet California educational standards, or convening focus groups to assess human factors that enable graduate design students to design for accessibility, we provide a balance of visionary thinking, creative problem-solving and accountability. We also assist on the adoption of arts programming by corporations and businesses for the purposes of enhancing their business profile and to help provide a stimulating and creative environment for their employees. Our website, NewArtHorizons.com, serves as a free public resource enabling others to explore our interests through links to relevant articles, lectures, research and events by professionals in the field. New Art Horizons is led by Jeffrey Chapline, a pioneer in the field of Creative Aging.
