This ARC-funded project focuses on music and wellbeing in Australia’s growing older population, and explores how engaging with meaningful creative activities can empower older people.

The CCRI has been commissioned to support a Scoping review to inform the above, with an emphasis on exploring empowerment with First Nations communities.
