Older People, Culture, Community and Connection – Research Digest Film
By Tot Foster, 11th October 2022
In this film, Tot Foster describes some of the key findings of the ‘Older People, Culture, Community and Connection’ research digest. The research digest brings together the findings of 70 internationally peer-reviewed studies published since 2011 that describe the relationship between cultural participation, older people’s wellbeing and feelings of social connection. Watch the film below.
Our review was shaped in consultation with cultural practitioners and organisations through an event held in May 2022, which illuminated the sector’s interest in knowing more about the added value of cultural participation on social connectivity, its relationship to wellbeing, and the role of the digital in cultural participation.
