What role can the arts and creativity play in keeping us healthier, for longer? How can we ensure that our quality of life increases at the same rate as our life spans?
London Arts in Health Forum (LAHF) partner with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) to host a discussion on Thurs 15 June from 5pm – 6pm featuring leading researchers, practitioners and participants on the ways that creativity can support us in later life.
The panel, chaired by LAHF Director Damian Hebron, will feature members of RADA’s Elders Company, the organisation’s resident theatre company for over 60s; clinical health psychologist and Co-Director of the Wellcome Collection’s current Hub residency on the arts and dementia care, Dr Paul Camic; co-Director of Salmagundi Films (an organisation using animation and digital technology to creatively engage those with dementia) Bo Chapman; and Artistic Director of Turtle Key Arts (an organisation using music and song with dementia patients and carers) Charlotte Cunningham MBE.
This event is a fantastic opportunity to boost your understanding about how cultural engagement can generate good health and wellbeing in later life.
Tickets cost £5 and can be booked via Eventbrite.
