Creative Writing for Brain Health, Tuesday 7 June 2022

The uplifting power of enjoyment of creative writing, our voices heard, sharing and sparking ideas nurtures our resilience in the community.

Engaging in re-energising social activity from the onset of a potential dementia empowers individuals and their loved ones to preserve their brain health, combat isolating fears and nurtures sense of identity, of belonging and resilience for years longer.

Professor Lynne Corner, Director of VOICE and COO at the UK National Innovation Centre for Ageing at the University of Newcastle chairs a debate between leaders in social prescribing, culture health and wellbeing, with a particular focus on the science of language for brain health, referral to creative writing programmes and a range of poetry approaches, including creative writing for South Asians for brain health are debated.



The webinar series is produced in partnership with Sir Muir Gray of the Optimal Ageing Programme at the University of Oxford and with Arts 4 Dementia.
