Meet Insa Schrader.

Berlin-based Insa Schrader's work is focussed on the beneficial opportunities that interactions between health, prevention and art and culture can deliver. She networks internationally with makers and experts, and works with clinics and nursing homes as well as museums, galleries, municipalities and companies.

Several anecdotes and surprises emerged when I explored Insa’s work and created her fantasy culture year in their interview together.

It's widely accepted that involvement in the arts and culture have a positive effect on our health, both mentally and physically. Several scientific studies by renowned institutes around the world have shown that intellectual and sense stimulating experiences help aid recovery, prevent mental health illnesses such as anxiety and depression and maintain good health. Insa is playing a vital role in this respect.

Insa creates healing culture networking opportunities between healthcare and the cultural sector and strengthens the exchange of knowledge and experience.

In healthcare, she has established art therapies, temporary events such as exhibitions and concerts and improvised interventions such as clinic clowns. To create a healing environment, she has put various forms of the arts in buildings and hospitals, creating sensual and stimulating spatial atmospheres. Ultimately, arts and culture enlivens hospitals and care homes for residents, relatives, visitors and staff.

This flows into her work on corporate health management, creating lively, attractive working environments. Institutions have come to rely on healing culture as a strategic approach: with the expanded self-image, they become a place of well-being, inspiration and contemplation, resilience and prevention.

Healing culture is a provider of social prescribing - medically prescribed and professionally accompanied cultural experiences instead of antibiotics and drugs. These include museum visits or artistic activities in painting, dance, music and singing. These often focus on social participation and therefore, usually takes place in group situations.

IN our interview Insa tells me about Health Humanities - a subject area in education for health professions - especially in medical studies. The focus is on developing and strengthening a holistic self-image, soft skills like empathy, communication, error culture and self-leadership are taught. This includes sensory competencies, which are activated, for example, through art viewing or practical experiences in storytelling, dance or acting.

Insa is very proud of her healing culture research projects - especially in the context of neuroscience (Neuroarts). Her ongoing work through healing culture brings art and culture into everyday life in many places and into the centre of life.
