This research cluster team is exploring synergies between cultural, creative and mindfulness practices that have the potential to foster and sustain health and well-being.
This cluster draws on the collective expertise of researchers from Canada, the U.K. and France to co-develop an arts-based community-engaged research model. The team members combine cultural, creative and mindfulness practices and integrates the perspectives of Indigenous scholars and artists to explore the cultural, spiritual and environmental dimensions of health and well-being.
The team received a UBCO Cluster of Research Excellence award in 2018.
