More details on the project website 

During the pandemic, we have adapted to new ways of working, socializing, learning and taking care of ourselves. For disabled people, being able to participate remotely has increased the accessibility of arts and culture. We are researching an online performing arts programme for people with brain injury, and asking if this has similar benefits to those experienced in a ‘real life' group. If so, should the online arts movement become part of the ‘new normal'?

As an occupational therapist, Dr Elizabeth Taylor is already a believer in the importance of engaging in meaningful occupations, using arts and creativity for well-being and rehabilitation, and connecting with others in shared participation.

Her previous research has looked at other aspects of stroke rehabilitation (the process of regaining skills that may have been impaired after stroke), so she is enjoying the opportunity to learn more about the existing body of research and history of ideas relating to the value of the arts and culture.

Booking is essential to attend this event.
