Can a music and drama intervention improve emotional wellbeing in stressed young people living with HIV in Zimbabwe? Can it even improve engagement with HIV care and immune function?
You are invited to a film screening and panel discussion exhibiting the ‘Creative Arts Hub Zimbabwe’, a collaborative project between the Magitare Trust, the Brit School, the Zvandiri charity, and the IoPPN Health Services & Population Research Department.
The Creative Arts Hub Zimbabwe explores how the creative arts can encourage self-expression in young people aged 16-24 living with HIV to improve emotional wellbeing, resilience and engagement with HIV care.
The panel will discuss innovative ways to engage young people living with HIV and depression with persistent poor health outcomes. It will include members of the project team as well as representatives from UK charity Body & Soul, clinical psychologist Dr. Anna Smith (SLAM) and Dr Daisy Fancourt (UCL).
Please note there will be a short musical and dance performance featuring members of the Creative Arts Hub Zimbabwe project collaborators from 17:30 in the Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre atrium.
