Get hands-on and experience new approaches to engaging meaningfully with people with dementia through contemporary art.
Our Artful: Art and Dementia professional development evening will include the latest tools and research for individuals interested in exploring art and creative learning as a way to engage people living with dementia and their support networks.
The evening includes hands-on activities led by artist educators from the MCA’s Artful program, an interactive gallery experience to gain confidence in facilitation skills, and a panel discussion with key experts in the field on best-practice strategies and research.
Attendees will also be the first to see the MCA’s new Artful digital toolkit and will hear insights from our 3-year research report on the impact of the program on participants’ wellbeing and on markers of neuroplasticity. Our toolkit has been created to support the creative engagement of individuals living with dementia at home or in care centres. It will be available worldwide from March 2020 and is filled with step-by-step activities, videos and tips.
All ticket holders will have access to a special discount price for the toolkit on the evening.
Refreshments and snacks will be served from 5.30pm.
