Art Saves Lives! But can it save society?
The arts have a magnetic way of pulling people from the margins, celebrating our human diversity and significantly contributing to meaningful community life. In recognition of Creative Arts Therapies Week and to honour the human behaviours of art making, this public conversation will explore the multiple ways the arts improve our health, the well-being of our families and our neighbourhoods. If the act of making art in community is recognized to be beneficial, why don’t more of us engage in this practice more often? For many, art making is seen as child’s play or something reserved for the talented creative class. Where does this perception come from and what would it take for it to change? Whose responsibility is it to make creative practices more accessible? What would that look like? Together, we will imagine a world in which art making is viewed as a priority for everyone throughout all stages of life. How do we get there and what would the benefits be?
