Explore the Culture of Comfort Project

If we have culture at the base of everything, we have the resilience and the possibility of rebuilding no matter what comes our way because we are sustaining one another, and together, we're stronger.’ Yo-Yo Ma

Art can be a vehicle for communicating great passions and tragedies, but there’s also evidence to suggest that culture can be calming, consoling, and a source of great comfort.
