Musings on Art and Well-being

Dirk De Wachter, practising psychiatrist and lecturer at UPC KU Leuven, will be making regular appearances as our ambassador this season. Reflecting on art and well-being, he offers these words of encouragement for us: ‘In these strange times let us use the arts to strengthen the imagination and communication. If we are prevented from touching each other, we might, through the indirect appreciation of art, find a special and more deeply entwined bond than that offered by touching directly.'
