The Power of the Arts to Heal

Far from a luxury of the leisure class, the arts offer therapeutic power as essential to healing as food and medicine. Whether it is music that restores equilibrium to a wounded veteran, dance that allows a wheelchair-bound woman to move, or painting that helps a child express trauma, art helps us tell our stories and restore our humanity.
