Art can alleviate the difficulties that human beings experience, such as disease, aging, disabilities, or damage caused by natural disasters. Art has the potential to change the state of mind.

Based on such belief, a hospital artist has been challenging the various experiences with art. The presentation will showcase the attempts made within this framework and introduced changes. Although it is not a very well known fact, Polish artists, such as Jozef Wilkon, also took part in the aforementioned activities in Japan. I will present our common efforts made for the sake of Japanese children, hospitals and art museums.
