Health Arts Society of Atlantic Canada (HASAC) is grateful to BMO Financial Group, whose generous support has made possible the first events of the Society. The Society launched its programme in November 2011 and to date has presented the work of professional musicians in all four Atlantic provinces. HASAC is an emerging force in the field of arts in health care in the region. It is driven by the central idea that people in care, especially in long-term isolation, are in need of cultural engagement. Its Concerts in Care programme addresses this issue.
