About this Event

The Health and WellBeing Research Theme at Western Sydney University welcomes you to Research Week at Western. For further events during this week, please visit the website at www.westernsydney.edu.au/researchweek

Through personal engagement, work in the community, and in targeted therapeutic contexts, the creative arts and culture are powerful tools for enhancing health and wellbeing. Western Sydney researchers are collaborating to explore how we use the creative arts as a means to build connectedness to people and place in these changing environments, heightened by the recent global events of 2020. This work ranges from questions understanding the broader mechanisms behind arts engagement, to working alongside communities and organisations using the arts to cope with daily life.

We would like to share brief reports of recent WSU research in arts and health and provide a networking opportunity to discuss how we can collaborate with arts and cultural organisations in Western Sydney. Together, we can further the evidence and opportunity to demonstrate that creative arts and culture is pivotal for health and wellbeing, transforming the conversation from staying alive to truly living.

ORGANISERS: Dr Jennifer MacRitchie, Research Theme Fellow, Prof Virginia Schmied & A/Prof Paul Breen - Research Theme Champions, Health & Wellbeing theme
