We invite you to join us in making a positive impact to the lives of people affected by dementia by donating to this landmark AGWA program before 30 June.
Creative Encounters: Arts & Dementia at AGWA is a five-year, Gallery based program that will bring people living with dementia and their carers to the fore and highlight the important role of the arts for wellbeing.
Art can unlock creativity, spark imagination, break down barriers, and – most importantly – elicit joy. Our program of creative workshops and tours will create meaningful encounters that allow people living with dementia to find new ways of communicating. Developed in collaboration with dementia support services and featuring case studies, interviews and observation, the AGWA Arts & Dementia program will also produce shared resources for the arts and allied health community, to directly benefit the lives of the 472,000 Australians living today with dementia and their 1.6 million carers.
