“In a single glance through a picture, you can be transformed into another world”
It’s no secret that we are facing unprecedented levels of anxiety. But what if there was a parallel world that offered us a different way of thinking about life? Director of the Art Fund, Stephen Deuchar, believes that museums and art galleries offer just that. He talks about the fascinating findings of a recent report that found that actively deciding to take time for cultural activities and pursuits can have a profound impact on our overall wellbeing. Stephen believes that every human could be moved by a piece of art or culture and that there is something on offer for everyone. And it needn’t take hours – even a short visit will be beneficial. After talking to Stephen, I feel inspired to explore the rich diversity that is on offer. I hope you do too!
