The Arts & Humanities Program

Great Art Belongs Where There Is Great Need



The Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center Arts & Humanities Program promotes an optimum life experience for patients, family members, and caregivers with activities, resources, education, and environments that encourage a creative and constructive response to illness.

The arts in all forms are introduced as tools for coping through self expression. Performances, workshops, exhibitions, environmental enhancements and education programs engage the entire Lombardi community in creative activities that help transcend illness concerns.


"I made the decision to treat my cancer in a place 70 miles from home because I hoped that through the Arts Program I would find some part of myself again, that I would not drown in the fear of this disease."

-Leslie, cancer survivor
