A Conversation about Art and Healing

No part of the world has been untouched by the pandemic, which has not only affected the health of millions and caused massive social and economic disruption but has taken a silent toll, through the isolation, anxiety, financial hardship and grief it has inflicted on every community. In this event Film, TV and Theatre actress Gillian Anderson and Christopher Bailey, the World Health Organization’s Arts & Health lead, discuss personal stories of how art can help comfort, confront difficult social problems and build community. They will also be talking to special guest, Sir Antony Gormley, who was one of the first to donate a work to the auction, and WHO director general Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, as well as introducing some of the community-based art projects being supported through the initiative. Ending segment including artworks and music by Martin Creed.
