Spreading the Word: Art as Consolation

In this week’s “Spreading the Word”, I share with you a video on art. It is only 8 minutes long but conveys a valuable thought – art is one of humanity`s chief sources of consolation.

Have a look at the video authors` proposed 7 most calming works of art. My personal favourite is No 3 along with its deeper message to us all:

“What appears immensely threatening may be highly survivable.”

Keeping up the new “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Thursday I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. Especially now, during our uncertain times, I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned to storytelling when everything else fails. My Thursdays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.

keep exploring and storytelling!
