London | WC1E 7HB | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Speaker: Dr Daisy Fancourt

There is growing research demonstrating the effects of arts and cultural engagement on health across the lifespan, from lullabies helping premature babies to gain weight, to magic tricks improving hand function in hemiplegia, to dance helping people with Parkinson’s disease to walk. This presentation will discuss recent research from psychobiology and epidemiology studies and give an overview of some of the major developments in this area of work, including the publication of a political report from the All Party Parliamentary Group report on Arts, Health and Wellbeing and the launch of the new National Culture Health and Wellbeing Alliance.
