In a recent series of articles by the BBC art is explored for it’s value to society. A couple of the questions among several that the series seem to be asking include, can creative activities help us stay young and can creativity cure the sick?
I’m not to sure about our unhealthy obsession with staying young and i’m also a little hesitant about magical ‘cures’, but this aside I feel myself shouting, with the slight edge of someone who can’t quite believe that we really need to ask this question,… YES!
Yes it is powerful and yes it is important in our aging population and yes it can play a humungous role in maintaining and improving our health. Of course yes!
