Physician Jeremy Nobel says loneliness is “the most human of feelings and a call to creative self-expression and connection.” His organization, The Foundation for Art and Healing, uses the arts to reconnect us with ourselves and other people. We’ll talk to Nobel about the power of creativity and about his new book, Project Unlonely.
We’ll also look at music therapy as medicine. Whether playing an instrument, singing a song or listening to a favorite piece, music therapist Joke Bradt has found music can reduce pain among cancer patients and rebuild connections. She is the director of the Music, Creativity and Wellness Lab at Drexel University.
