The Arts is not just an extra. Creativity is essential to the survival and transformation of cultures, communities and civilizations. The Healing Eye aims to advance the role of the Humanities in nurturing creative and independent thinking in the pursuit of new meanings and alternative visions. It blogs to advance ‘creative engagement’ as a medium to harness unity and consensus in the community and the workplace. Inspired by the philosophy that the artist is endowed with a healing eye, this blog aims to transcend the ethics of the ‘arts for arts sake’ to a new healing ethic that is ‘arts for service and humanity’s sake.
