Dementia and the Arts: Sharing Practice, Developing Understanding and Enhancing Lives

Sebastian Crutch, UCL (University College London)

Understand how the arts can improve the lives of people with dementia

Creating a society that supports people living with a dementia is a major challenge - and opportunity. On this course you will discover how the arts can create a common ground between people. You will learn what we can all do to improve the quality of life and care for people living with different dementias, examining best practice and the limits of our current understanding.

Drawing on the work of the Created Out of Mind project during its residency at the Wellcome Collection, this course will expand your perceptions of the dementias and the diverse role of the arts in all our lives.

This course is for people interested in dementia care. You might be living with a dementia, helping to care or support someone who is, are an artist or healthcare practitioner currently working or thinking about working in the dementia and arts field, or a student, researcher or commissioner trying to understand the role of arts-based practices in dementia care,.
