CIMTR Hybrid Public Lecture Series: Music and Creativity in Healthcare Settings: Does Music Matter?Events — Online Webinar Jerome Booth Music Therapy Centre, Young Street, Cambridge, CB12LZ & ZOOM

Hilary will discuss the four main themes of her book, Music and Creativity in Healthcare Settings: Does Music Matter? published in 2021. Performance - how the arts are used most effectively in hospital; Listening and Self Expression - the importance of telling one’s story of illness and artists are uniquely positioned to hear these stories and support their expression; Dissonance – How the arts, especially music, can cause harm; and Polyphony – the importance of interdisciplinary relationships for positive health and well-being outcomes. She will draw especially on music as her primary art form to give clinical examples from her work as a music therapist and Arts Therapies manager for over 20 years.
