The Science of Creativity

The arts are transformational and engage our hearts, our minds, and our souls. They have universal appeal and elevate empathy, compassion, and connection on an individual level. From a societal perspective, art can be a unifying force to decreasing social barriers and strengthening interpersonal connections.

Creative expression also has the power to improve wellbeing by helping us understand ourselves and shifting perspectives that reinforce positive behaviors. Physiologically, making art has powerful effects on our bodies: reducing blood pressure, bolstering our immune system, improving brain cognition, and fighting inflammation.

Art’s Significance

Creative arts have been used throughout civilizations as an essential component to human flourishing – providing valuable insight into cultural traditions and a portrait of our values and ideals of societies. In recent years, there has been an increased interest and growing body of scientific evidence to prove its efficacy in promoting and managing health. Today, there’s extraordinary potential to combine the arts with modern science and health practices to better utilize creative expression as a public health medicine.
