Webinar – Culture Days and Get Creative Festival: Recent findings from across the pond on personal well-being and arts participation
“On May 29, 2019 Culture Days was joined by BBC Arts Editor Stephen James-Yeoman and University College London (UCL) Senior Research Fellow Dr. Daisy Fancourt to discuss new research on the benefits of arts participation. A recent study conducted by Dr. Fancourt and UCL identified the different ways that people use creativity as a coping mechanism to control negative emotions, such as stress and anxiety, and how spending just a brief amount of time on artistic pursuits can have a direct impact on personal well-being.
The study has been released in connection with the Get Creative Festival – the UK-wide celebration of creativity that took place from May 11-19, 2019. Stephen James-Yeoman will speak about the festival, its audience, and ongoing research efforts, in addition to the many links between Get Creative and Culture Days.”
