This week we received our latest copy of Arts & Health, An International Journal for Research, Policy and Practice. We read it from cover to cover and it has helped us greatly within our practice and research.
There's more information on the Taylor & Francis website www.tandfonline.com
This info will be saved in the Literature section under the Resources tab which you can find on the Navigation bar.
We met the people from Society for Community Organisation (SoCO) today and came across one of their amazing projects. Kid Photographer is a photography workshop in which kids took pictures of their life and environment in Sham Shui Po.
The book is still for sale. You can buy it by getting in contact with SoCO by clicking here.
Food for thought. Very interesting article on the BBC website about the research into creativity and its plausable link with mental illness.
