Healing Through Creativity

Desiree Cox MD Ph.D.

Healing Through Creativity – Outside in. How where you live can affect your genes

Where you live can affect your genes. Natural Genetics, the study of the effects of nature, nurture and culture on our health and genetics shows that our living spaces (our environment and lifestyles) can affect our genetics. ‘Space matters’ is the theme of this week’s conversation with Professor Stuart MacDonald OBE, artist, architect, consultant, and cultural transformation through creative design. Our discussion ranges from the craft of art and architectural design to the co-creation of educational and public spaces that inspire community engagement, public-private partnerships and healing. Where are the best cities to live? Find out in this week’s healing through creativity conversation. You can find out more about Professor Stuart MacDonald from his website.
