Event description
CONVERSATIONS ON ARTS, HEALTH AND COMMUNITY IN OTTAWA

About this Event

To establish a community of practice around Arts, Health and Community, first at the local level and then more widely to include national and international partners. We hope that by establishing a community of practice that we will complement and amplify what is already out there.

Programme

1:00-1:15 Welcome & Opening Warm-up

1:15-1:30 Introduction

1:30-2:35 The Many Ways to Care With Music – Dr. Lee Bartel, Professor Emeritus, Music Education & Music and Health, University of Toronto

This talk will look at the multiple ways people respond to music (from learned association to unconscious cellular response) and at 10 practical ways music can be implemented into long-term care with evidence of the effects on clearly observable conditions like loneliness and isolation using the example of Room 217 – a social enterprise that uses music to help change the culture of care.

2:35-3:05 Networking Break

3:05-3:50 Discussion Round Tables

• What do we have in common in terms of values and goals? What do health, community and the arts have to offer each other?

• What can we accomplish as a network that cannot exist otherwise?

3:50-4:00 Wrap-up: Next steps – Towards our Community of Practice showcase in March 2020

Event jointly sponsored by Carleton University and National Arts Centre.
