Sharing findings from the Unlocking Our Sound Heritage project
The British Library alongside 10 Hub partners has been using the rich content from its sound archives to develop new programmes and resources that inspire creativity, stimulate memory and enhance wellbeing.
Sounds that draw on nature including birdsong, music and poetry, or coastal life, have been used to engage and support individuals with various needs. Bringing together heritage and health practitioners, artists and therapists, this interactive event will explore the potential of sound to serve as a powerful wellbeing tool.
From improving mental health and supporting people recovering from brain injuries, to inspiring new resources for people living with dementia and their carers, learn how stories and sounds from the nation’s audio collections have been used to combat isolation and enhance wellbeing.
