Our host Chris Nicholson is joined by Christopher Bailey, Arts and Health Lead at the World Health Organisation, in a discussion spanning the many ways that arts and health intersect, how artists facilitate different ways of healing, and how these issues relate directly to the lived experiences of displaced people.
During the conversation Christopher shared with us some deeply moving personal stories from his experience of the healing nature of the arts, as well as a new initiative that he and the WHO are supporting, the Healing Arts Initiative.
