Here’s my reflections on Task 4
a) 5 hard facts on my café topic idea
Even though it asks for 5 facts only, I have found a few more:
1 – The number of Portuguese looking to settle in Britain was up by almost ten thousand people, last year.
2 – Music can bring back memories (One of my important aspects for my café – Nostalgia)
3 – Music improves focus, creativity and increases our verbal IQ levels
4 – Music can eliminate anxiety
5 – Music can bring people together
6 – Music can help treat heart disease
7 -Music increases the immune system
b) Identifying a charity for the issue and by looking at their website, I needed to pick out five quotes of around 10-15 words:
‘People Dancing’ – The foundation for community dance. – Reflects community dance cultures in Uk and beyond; Encouraging dialogue, reflection and dance practice.
1 – ‘Transforming some tremendous inequalities through the power of dance.’
2 – ‘Bringing people together to dance and find their individual and collective dance voice.’
3 – ‘There’s a similarity wide – raging spirit affect in community dance.’
4 – ‘A project that encompasses the weider health issues of participation in dance.’
5 – ‘Something fundamental for the benefit of people dancing: inspiration, hope, challenge.
c) Find an animation about the topic or a video of someone talking about this issue:
This animation was pretty helpful, because while it explains how music affects the brain, it gave me some answers to the task 14 a), on hard facts.
