Art as Health

The Vision:
Healthcare became more about preventing getting sick and living a happy healthy life, making the arts part of Healthcare. There is a whole industry dedicated to study the relationship between health benefits and art therapy and develop programs to promote art as a healthy practice.

Some taxpayer money funds Arts programs, but the wealth tax introduced in 2030 made multibillion-dollar corporations and individuals fund interconnected Art Centers, that provide the space and tools to learn and practice any type of art. In these centers, AALANA Youth in Chicago would be able to access all the tools to learn Shodo (Calligraphy) from an artist in Japan.
