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 referral to creative writing programmes

If you are involved or interested in innovative ways of using poetry and creative writing to inspire older adults to override mild cognitive impairment, or are responsible for culture, health and wellbeing, or are a social prescriber or for anyone interested in culture and creativity to preserve for brain health, join us for this free webinar on Tuesday 7 June 2022 at 12-1.15 pm GMT.
