Our aims are:
- to improve older people’s access to the arts
- to help combat the isolation of older people through participatory arts projects
- to work with partners to raise the status of the field
- to support and train artists to ensure good practice
In response to a recent groundswell of interest and increasing levels of activity in arts and dementia, we have developed the Arts & Dementia Network to champion the role of the arts in dementia care and support artists and health and social care professionals working in the field.
