Music for wellbeing was born out of our experiences as music therapists. In summer 2016 we qualified as music therapists and had seen how being involved in musical experiences could affect mood, communication and bring people together. We were keen to start a project that made this more accessible to the general public, rather than just people involved in music therapy. Since then we have offered workshops in the community and care homes and are developing work with students and businesses around the Bristol area.
Our creativity, as a means of connecting with ourselves, others and the world around us, is vital to building a wellbeing based society. Without it, we are destined to plough through the existing paradigm as it grows ever more obsolete and unresponsive to our needs. By embedding creativity and the value of creativity into our everyday lives and into the way our infrastructure works for us, we don’t just embrace an intrinsic human quality, we allow ourselves the opportunity to develop appropriate solutions to the myriad issues facing society today.
