Kandinsky in Govan; Art, Spirituality and the Future

I went to this conference at the Pearce Institute in Govan.  It was excellent, and although Kandinsky himself never came to Govan, lots of people from all over the place came to the conference.  However the talk that most inspired me was by Harry Burns, Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer.  His talk was not recorded, but he was particularly talking about the effect of despair and hopelessness on individuals and communities, and the role art and spirituality can play in that.  Here is the link to the last few minutes of a talk delivered at the NHS Scotland Conference 2011 by Scotland’s Chief Medical Officer.
