In a recent article by The Stage, Lyn Gardner wrote that attending higher education in the arts is more about enriching your life than impacting you financially, stating that ‘access to the arts and participatory arts activity has a positive impact on well-being, but also makes us more empathetic as individuals.”
As Richard Eyre has observed: “The arts enable us to put ourselves in the minds, eyes, ears and hearts of other human beings.”
