Do you see what I see? Art as a Tool for Healing
How can museums support community well-being by addressing the needs of its healthcare workers? What does an effective healing experience for hospital staff suffering from emotional exhaustion and burnout look like? Over the last year the Arts in Medicine Program at New York City Health + Hospitals–the largest municipal health system in this country–in partnership with the Brooklyn Museum, has been providing opportunities for staff members across the hospital system to reduce stress and connect with one another. Program leaders will share how they have worked together to provide experiences that relieve stress, foster connections, and provide a calm and empathetic space for self-care for hospital administrators, custodians, doctors, drivers, nurses, residents, and more.
