Arts&Health: Promoting wellbeing through creativity

Av Marthe Haugdal | 14. mai 2019

What role can the arts have in facilitating health and well-being? How can engaging in music, writing and other forms of creativity contribute to self-expression and healthy ageing? 

Thursday 9 May researchers within welfare technology, creative writing and neurology talked about current research projects and discuss different perspectives on the topic at this mini-seminar at The Medicine and Health Library, NTNU, Trondheim.
