Culture Box Study

Songhaven is proud to be in the company of numerous respected organisations as a partner for Culture Box – a research project promoting social interaction and public health through the arts in the time of COVID-19. Culture Box aims to see how the arts can be used to alleviate social isolation and loneliness while improving the wellbeing of people living with dementia. The project is being conducted by the University of Exeter and is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
