The Creative Advantage.png

There has been a growth in studies that quantify the mental health and overall well-being benefits of creative practices.

Engaging in creative activities has been attributed to improving rates of depression, reducing the body's response to stress, assisting with cognitive decline, boosting the immune system, and increasing our happiness.

Maria Simonelli is passionate about encouraging others to dive into the power of their creative potential. As an author, educator, and artist, Maria has spent her life building creative capacity across government, business, and community that results in real and positive change.

This presentation will help craft a healthier mindset, explain the benefits of creative activities on mental health, the latest innovative approaches to incorporating the arts into healthcare, and how we can utilise the arts to assist in learning.

Free, bookings essential.
