29: Arts, creativity, and wellbeing

Helen is joined by Professor Vicky Karkou, Director for the Research Centre for Arts and Wellbeing at Edge Hill University. Lots of us have been dancing, singing, painting, cooking, gardening, and doing craft projects during COVID-19. In this episode we talk about how arts and creativity benefit our mental wellbeing, the research evidence in this area, and how they can be used therapeutically.
