The Healing Arts invites the public into rarely seen places of creation. Visit the spaces of leading artists, architects and frontline workers to hear firsthand how they know that practicing art can heal, especially during this period of global confinement. Then join us as we bring you into the psychiatric ward of a hospital to hear accounts how murals can improve the healing environment for patient and care givers.
