About Arts 4 Dementia
Arts engagement has a huge impact on people affected by dementia, offering inspiration, a sense of joy and purpose and boosting self confidence - and can delay progression of symptoms.
Arts 4 Dementia was founded in 2011 and develops arts programmes to empower, re-energise and inspire people with early stage dementia and carers through challenging artistic stimulation, to help them live better for longer in their own homes. Our signposting website lists and maps local arts events nationwide for people living with dementia in the community, serving both those often desperate for stimulation and providers.
The photo above was taken from a video made during an A4D intergenerational workshop led by Fine Art students from Central Saint Martins.
Our early stage and dementia awareness training for arts facilitators enables them to deliver effective workshops. The 900+ arts facilitators trained to date will in 2022 deliver arts events to over 18,000 people affected by dementia and their carers.
We are leading a national Social Prescribing for Brain Health campaign to encourage clinicians treating patients going through a possible dementia diagnosis to refer them to arts activities as a means now widely aknowledged to enhance wellbeing and slow cognitive decline.
A4D focuses on what people can achieve, often much more than they imagine.
You will need to set a target of £500 (with a minimum pledge of £350) and pay a donation of £25 through the A4D website to register.
