A BIG thank you to our 17 wonderful runners who each went the extra 12 miles - and hundreds more in training - to transform the lives of people with dementia and their carers through artistic stimulation which overrides symptoms and empowers them to rekindle fulfilling, active life in the community.

About Arts 4 Dementia

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, so they can live better for longer in their own homes. Our signposting website lists arts events for people living with dementia in the community, serving both those often desperate for stimulation and providers.  Our early stage and dementia awareness training for arts facilitators enables them to deliver effective workshops.

A4D focuses on what people can achieve, often much more than they imagine.  


Sunday 8th October was a beautiful day and an extraordinary atmosphere pervaded Hyde Park - with 16,000 runners and tens of thousands of supporters enjoying the Royal Parks Half Marathon festival.  After running past palaces and the sights of Central London, more than half of the course wound through Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens where there were multiple opportunities for friends and families following the team's progress to cheer them on. A great day was had by all and at A4D we are hugely grateful to every runner and their friends and family memebers who supported them - on the day and financially through their campaigns.  This is absolutely what makes possible the life transforming workshops.
