Creative Coffee

Creativity and Mental Health

Why is creativity so important to our mental health and how can we use our creativity to manage a healthy mind.

Mary Genis leads a discussion to explore and share ways in which we can improve and maintain a good quality of life by prioritising our mental health and the important role creativity has in enabling us to flourish as humans.

Creative Coffee is part of the lockdown activities brought to you by Reading Digital Fringe Festival.

The Reading Fringe Festival is an award winning festival, started in 2013 by Zsuzsi Lindsay with a marketeer, producer and a writer team. The Reading Fringe aims to support local emerging artists, provide an affordable platform for artists traveling up to the world famous Edinburgh Fringe and to welcome exciting, vibrant acts to the town from all of the world.

Since it was started, the Fringe has won the Pride of Reading Award for Cultural Contribution 2014, two Reading Cultural Awards (Festival of the Year in 2017 and Great Place in 2019), and was nominated for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2015.
