Abstract

“Go see the museum”, said the doctor. Does the phenomenon of ‘doctors prescribing museum visits’ signal the breakthrough of art’s positive impact on health beyond its biomedical aspects (Smid & Wydoodt, 2016)? Or is it just a fad? Is it a pretended quick fix to mitigate the feelings of isolation and alienation experienced during a pandemic? Or is a referral system becoming part of culture-based welfare services? What are the implications and opportunities for arts management?
