Creative Practice in the Resilience of Older People is the first book to bring researchers together from multiple disciplines to address the relationship between taking part in creative interventions and well-being. Understanding how creative interventions can help develop social connectivity and resilience for older people is vital in developing a holistic interdisciplinary approach towards active ageing. Academics with a wide range of expertise critically reflect on how the built environment, community living, cultural participation, lifelong learning, and artist-led interventions can aid older people to thrive and overcome both challenging life events and every day changes associated with ageing. Cultural engagement can allow older people to develop different types of meaningful social networks and, in the process, to actively contribute to contemporary societal debates. This book uses participatory research methods to look at the relationship between taking part in creative interventions, the development of different types of social relationships, and fostering resilience.
