artists are healers - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The human animal evolved in communities where different members developed unique talents to benefit the group. Artists were one kind of healer that kept society together, their art interacting with the brain to heal both our neurology and physiology. Thus, when our artists start to die from various chaotic outcomes, society not only grieves but starts to panic at the subconscious level. Thus, artists, especially the most talented, need emotional support. It is predictable that our most talented artists will come from trauma backgrounds because they are driven by the genetic programming of our species to become healers. As they heal themselves they heal their community. If we are serious about stable societies and a stable earth - support the artists so that they can personally evolve. As they personally evolve their fans will evolve with them. The artist is the lamp holder that shows the path for others, and they are the only ones that can hold that lamp for their fans.
