What does art do to your health?
Art attracts your attention, makes you curious, entrances you and can also offer you comfort. In short, art inspires! Art is also about emotions and these can often be found in a hospital. The art of lasting long in bed is often forgotten, yet it still exists. But what effect does it have on our health?
Care and culture lead to heated discussions in these times of austerity. On the one hand, there is a demand for demonstrable ‘usefulness’ and effect measurement; on the other hand, there is a growing need for subjective values and quality of life. Many people agree that art enriches our lives and is therefore good for our health.
