In this episode, I am joined by Dr Robyn Dowlen from the University of Leeds and Helena Bull from the Manchester Camerata. We discuss how music and other forms of creativity can help to age well, and should be part of all of our lives. Creativity comes in many forms, you might not know how creative you are.
Robyn is a postdoctoral research associate and has a specialism in the ways in which engaging with arts and culture can impact on our health and wellbeing, and her PhD focussed on understanding the benefits of music for people living with dementia.
Helena is a project manager with Camerata’s Community team, working alongside musicians and various partners to coordinate a range of creative music making projects.
