Prof Anne Read: The importance of ephemeral and intangible activity on health

Sydney Concepts @ Westmead



WECC Level 1 – The huddle

Professor Anne Reid is Dean, Sydney Conservatorium of music. Anna undertakes research in musician identity, creativity theory and practice, cultural heritage and sustainability, and higher education. She also has publications in mathematics, statistics and environmental sustainability. Anna is a cellist, viola da gamba and erhu player.

Musical thinking and experience impact on the way we think about ourselves in a rather essential way. The ephemeral characteristics of music can help people change their mood, from sadness to happiness, or from moments of pain towards a means of easing that pain. In this talk we will explore what impact ephemeral and intangible activities have on health.

For registration:
