Join Dr Daisy Fancourt to discuss whether a culture fix can really help tackle health problems.
There is growing research showing the effects of arts and cultural engagement on health across the human lifespan: from lullabies helping premature babies to gain weight, to magic tricks improving hand function in hemiplegia and dance helping people with Parkinson’s disease to walk.
In this talk, we will discover some of the most exciting research findings to date and explore how the arts are currently being rolled out 'on prescription' across the NHS.
Talk – admittance for our talks is first-come, first-served. Please ensure you arrive early for talks as we can get busy at the weekends and you may need to queue to get into the building.
