Great Minds: Art and the Brain

Exploring the link between Arts Interventions and Degenerative Brain Conditions

Tuesday 26 July 2022, 5.00pm - 8.30pm, Telegraph Hotel, Coventry City Centre

Can making and experiencing art help maintain a healthy brain? How might art be used to help people with degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia?

We know that great art can stir the emotions, but now it looks like it can actually improve brain function, (raise serotonin levels and impact on your nervous system). And these benefits don't just come from making art, they also occur by experiencing art!

In this free event, hear from our fantastic line up of researchers (in rehabilitation medicine and neuroscience) from the University of Warwick who will be joined by local artists, authors and representatives from local charities. All the speakers will ignite discussion around the link between the Arts and the brain, and how the Arts can be used to improve the quality of lives of those that have been affected by degenerative brain conditions.
