Mindful, musical walk

Older people, friends and carers are invited to a “mindful walk” with music and poetry in the Oxford University Parks on Tuesday March 1st.  A joint venture by Creative Dementia Arts Network (CDAN) and the university’s Gardens, Libraries & Museums (GLAM), the walk celebrates the work of Robert Burton, 16th century author of the Anatomy of Melancholy whose ideas about the therapeutic value of walking and nature still resonate today. Walkers can go at their own pace with three stops (chairs provided) for music from CDAN music lead Kate Wilkinson  and poems read by local poets. For a free place, contact Maria Parsons at info@creativedementia.org or 07801 509993.
