Artists: Showcase your work and help transform lives – in just a few minutes!

Do you want to showcase your work and improve quality of life for people living with dementia? #ArtTheBestMedicine

Arts 4 Dementia are launching an exciting social media campaign on Thursday 5 December at 6pm!

A diagnosis can be devastating, but even with dementia, it is still possible to live well, to be creative and to have fun through engagement with the arts. The arts can dramatically improve the quality of life for those living with dementia and you can help further the conversation through this campaign.

We are asking artists across the UK to post a piece of work and a short message to raise awareness of the huge contribution that the arts can make to people living with dementia.

Feeling creative? Produce or perform a piece of art, whether that’s a quick sketch, a detailed portrait, a photograph, a poem, a piece of music or a performance – As long as it is shareable via Instagram or Twitter, it really is up to you.

Post your work on Instagram or Twitter at:

6pm on Thursday 5 December 2019

Make sure you tag @Arts4dementia and hashtag #ArtTheBestMedicine and include some text encouraging people to take their loved one with dementia to an arts event or give them an arts experience!
