As part of a series of events for Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2017, Created Out of Mind's Paul Camic joins the Panel for a discussion event exploring the ways that creative engagement with different art forms can support us as we age.
One in six of the UK’s population is currently aged 65 and over and by 2050, it is estimated that it will increase to one in four. 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?
This event, led by London Arts in Health Forum (LAHF) in partnership with the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), is an opportunity for arts and health professionals to learn more about recent projects using participation in creative activities and cultural engagement to generate good health and wellbeing in later life.
Joining Paul will be LAHF Director Damian Hebron, who will chair the panel, Co-Director of Salmagundi Films, Bo Chapman, Artistic Director of Turtle Key Arts, Charlotte Cunningham MBE and Judith Bevan, a graduate of RADA’s Elders Company.
This event takes place as part of Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2017, a festival led by London Arts in Health Forum featuring hundreds of educational, participatory and stimulating events for people to learn how the arts and creativity can improve health and wellbeing.
