A space for healing through art for citizens and the society
The Seoul Art & Healing Hub is a space dedicated for therapeutic art, created by remodeling the former public health center and opening in 2019. It offers a variety of artistic healing programs in which artists and the public heal the minds through art in the spirit of the former health center. The Hub supports both artists’ development of the artistic healing content, collaborations with other areas including communities, education, and welfare, and local communities for citizens’ healing initiatives.
