Creativity, Connection, Community

With a growing understanding of the life-course risk factors for brain health, how do we take an integrated approach to building and supporting brain healthy communities for all ages?

This Brain Health & Housing Seminar explored how creativity can be used as a tool for building and sustaining brain healthy communities. Speakers examined how the arts can play a major role in bolstering brain health through creating community and easing isolation and loneliness as well as how these ideas can be incorporated into design and planning.

The seminar was chaired by Aine Kerr, journalist and co-founder of Kinzen.
