Why are cultural places essential?


Tuesday, several actors of culture, like Jack Lang but also psychiatrists and philosophers, meet in Paris. The goal? Show how culture is essential for our mental health. According to a study, carried out by the Gece institute at the beginning of the year, 81% of French people are in low spirits because of the closure of cultural places.

Going to the theater, to a concert or to the cinema stimulates our imagination and invites us to dream and to get out of our daily life. This is what emerges from a study carried out by the Gece institute at the beginning of the year, when several cultural players such as Jack Lang but also psychiatrists and philosophers meet in Paris. Since the start of the Covid-19 crisis, Marine Rimbaud, psychiatrist at the Sainte Anne hospital in Paris, has observed an increase in requests for consultation, in part because of the lack of cultural activities, which allow social links.

“It stimulates creativity, it improves self-esteem and in the end, it also allows a social identity because when we go to the theater, we will simply meet up with friends but we will also be surrounded by all our fathers. , of our neighbors. We are in a society and therefore it allows us to identify well “.

57% of people are in low spirits due to theaters and concert halls closing

French people miss cinemas the most, according to this study carried out by the Gece institute. Next come theaters and concert halls: 57% of those questioned have low morale because of their closures! And what about the artists for whom it is the profession… This lack, Arthur Teboul, the singer of Fire! Chatterton also feels it cruelly: “We have a great job because it allows us to be a link between people. It’s nice that in a room people don’t know each other, but at one point there is a osmosis and that’s because we don’t have it anymore that we realize it, I think “.

Our little consolation this year has been online culture. But only 40% of French people have virtually visited an exhibition or attended a show on the Internet.
