Take Note: Music Aids Recovery Symposium, evidencing the benefits of creative music making for wellbeing, 2 October 2017

Published: 20/09/2017

Our Trust has worked in partnership with Quench Arts to deliver a symposium looking at the benefits of creating music for wellbeing. The project has been funded by Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities Programme, and the event takes place on Monday 2 October 2017, at the Midlands Arts Centre between 10:30am-4:30pm.

‘Take Note: Music Aids Recovery’ will host a variety of presentations, workshops and a keynote presentation. The day aims to discuss how creating music can help build resilience, aid recovery and improve wellbeing, while sharing approaches to working creatively with vulnerable or isolated adults, or mental health service users. Case studies of successful projects and original music will also be showcased during the event.

The event has been organised as part of the award winning Musical Connections project, which helps vulnerable, isolated or disabled adults in Birmingham and Solihull, including mental health service users.

This interesting day would be of benefit to health and social care professionals, voluntary and arts organisations, and individual practitioners.

Tickets are £14.99, and lunch will be provided. Tickets are available to purchase via Eventbrite. Please also feel free to share the poster attached below.
