JOIN our A4D Webinar, 18 May
“My view now is I have dementia, but I also have a life.”
The arts – from painting and sculpture to singing and dance – can be life-changing for people with dementia and their companions. Arts activities empower, inspire, and improve confidence, helping people retain their identity and live happier lives in the community.
Who Is It For?
People who work in arts or wellbeing organisations; those in the fields of creative aging, social prescribing, and dementia support; or people already running visual arts programmes for individuals and family partners that wish to know more.
Join our Chief Executive, Penny Fosten, as we explore the benefits of the arts for brain health and wellbeing, as part of Dementia Action Week and Creativity and Wellbeing Week.
You’ll hear from inspirational guest speakers including partners from our host arts organisations, with insight from participants as they discuss what they value about engaging in the arts.
At the end of the webinar, there will be an opportunity to ask our panel your own questions about our work, explore how to bring this into your work, or how to improve the impact of work you’re already doing.
Guest Speakers Include:
- Holly Power, Community Learning Producer, The Wallace Collection
- Alex Schady, Art Programme Director, Central Saint Martins University of the Arts
- Anna Woolf, Interim Director, London Arts and Health Forum
- Beneficiaries, Arts 4 Dementia
