Event description

Description

This community outreach event comprises two engaging presentations built around the 2019 Culture Days theme Creativity, the Arts, and Wellbeing. Attendees will gain insight to research linking creativity and human needs. A 6pm talk Music and the Brain will be given by Dr Andy Bulloch, a mental health researcher, followed at 7pm with Prescriptions for Art by artist Dick Averns.

Attendees can share their own insight by contributing personal narratives in either of the Q+A sessions following each talk and during the meet and greet sessions. Art, Music and Wellbeing is a SITE cPROJECT promoting wellbeing through artistic programming and creative peer support, for anyone touched by mood disorders. cPROJECTS are an initiative of OBAD (Organization for Bipolar Affective Disorder).
