What is the research about?
What creative things have you been doing during the COVID-19 pandemic? We'd like to know because we want to understand how creativity helps people during a crisis.
The Creativity and Wellbeing Hallmark Research Initiative is investigating how creative activities can help people cope in times of crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
To do this, it is surveying people who have been involved in a creative activity during the pandemic, and invites you to participate. Creative activities are not just painting and playing music, they can include:
- Playing video games
Studying the experiences of people involved in such activities will allow society to better understand the value of creativity and the arts. The data will also be valuable for policymakers, creative organisations and government.
