Artists as Healers
Time & Location
About the Event
Art & Creativity has the power to soothe the soul. Kurt Vonnegut said, "To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it." This episode brings together artists, including, an actor, dancer, writer and photographer, to understand the essence of self-expression for holistic wellness. A small town or a big city, every place presents the same breadth of value when it comes to an artistic expression of the self. Awe-inspiring performances, exhibitions, penning one's spontaneous thoughts in a remote room, or even creative cooking at home have the potential to accelerate healing, bring comfort, inspire and strengthen coping.
So, let us deepen our understanding of why it is critical to make any form of art a part of our lives, from the perspective of people who are doing it, everyday, with love, empathy and passion.
