1. The Effect Of Art On Health During A Pandemic

In November 2019, the World Health Organisation’s regional office for Europe published a report showing that the arts have a beneficial effect on health and well-being. A few months later, the report seemed all but forgotten when the Covid-19 pandemic took over everyone’s attention. But perhaps it’s time to look at it again, because it might be even more important now than it was in November.

Some of the examples where arts interventions have been beneficial include the use of dance as a therapy for Parkinson’s Disease, the role of music in language development, or the positive effect of arts engagement on mental health in several different settings. Read more here.

2. A Tribute To All Women: Dana Hourani Releases ‘Enti Ana’

The Lebanese singer just unveiled her new song — dedicated to all the strong and resilient women of the Arab world and her hometown: Beirut.

Fans of the Lebanese content creator and musician have been waiting patiently for this day to come…

As few days ago, in a post shared on Dana Hourani’s public instagram page, she writes, “This song is for every mother, daughter, sister, and grandmother. For every man who acknowledges his heroine. And most of all, for the greatest goddess of all time, this is for her- my city Beuirt. I am, because she is. Love, Dana,” hinting that the release for her next song was just around the corner.

Now, she unveils her fourth single, ‘Enti Ana’ (I Am You): a tribute not only to the strength and resilience of the Lebanese capital, but also to the strong women within her life. Read more here.

3. Julia Paige: The Leader Behind Uber’s Global Social Impact

In February 2020, Julia Paige stepped into a new role as the Global Director of Social Impact at Uber. She did not imagine then that she would be leading the company’s response to a global pandemic. But just one month later, when the news of the coronavirus outbreak broke, Paige had her hands full. 

When she first arrived at Uber, she was happy to learn that the company had already committed to significant social impact efforts. Unfortunately, most people didn’t realize how much Uber was doing to support the communities they served. So, when the Covid-19 pandemic began in March, Paige recognized a chance for the company to continue the good it had been doing while sharing that work with its client base. Read more here.
