WN@TL: “Positive Youth Development at the Intersection of Arts and Public Health”

Speaker: Taylor Seale, UW-Extension

Bio: Taylor (Nefcy) Seale is a recent graduate of the Master of Public Health program at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, and simultaneously received an Arts in Public Health certificate from the Center for Arts in Medicine at the University of Florida. In addition, she has a BA in Theatre and Business Administration from Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. With her unique arts and public health background, she is passionate about how the arts intersect public health initiatives, particularly how the arts can be used as evidence-based methods for healthy community design, creative placemaking, and building resiliency in youth. Before becoming a Community Youth Development Educator at UW-Madison’s Division of Extension, she most recently served as a research associate for the Center for Arts in Medicine where she supported a CDC senior advisor in creating field guides for how to utilize arts and culture for COVID-19 vaccine confidence and health communication strategies. In her current role as a Community Youth Development Educator, she builds community partnerships in Dane County and across the state to promote physical health, social-emotional health, environmental health, and placemaking opportunities for youth.

Description:For her Master of Public Health thesis, Taylor worked with the newly developed Madison Youth Arts Center (MYARTS) and developed a toolkit called Arts Access Toolkit: Building Resiliency Through Youth-Centered Creative Placemaking. Join Taylor as she discusses evidence-based research, resiliency frameworks, and youth-centered design solutions of how organizations like MYARTS can best support youth health and well-being.
