Event: Resilence, Recovery, Happiness. 4 November 1pm Zochonis Building

An interactive music event: Resilience, Recovery, Happiness –  1pm Friday 4 November,  Zochonis Building Café (ground floor), Brunswick Street

The Division of Psychology and Mental Health in the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health are holding an interactive music event that will explore and write new songs on the themes of resilience, recovery and happiness with Music Action International’s refugee torture survivor collective, Stone Flowers.

Stone Flowers will teach and sing songs from their existing repertoire as well as premiering new songs exploring the resilience that has kept them going through difficult times, and the happiness discovered through creativity and music.

You can meet the band, listen, and even join in – regardless of musical experience!

Prof Gill Haddock, Head of The Division of Psychology and Mental Health, comments: “This is a great opportunity to celebrate our experience of resilience, recovery and happiness through the medium of music. Everyone is welcome to attend to just listen or participate and enjoy.”

Everyone is welcome to attend – please just drop in on the day.
