Launched in May 2021, the Art Remedy Podcast explores the broad benefits that the arts can bring to our health and wellbeing, our spaces and places, our social life and economy, and perhaps a better understanding of each other and the world around us.
Each month, we interview artists, creatives, community members, researchers and experts from a broad range of disciplines to talk about how the arts contribute in many ways to building better communities.
