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

Understand how the arts can improve the lives of people with dementia with this FREE online 4-week course developed by UCL and Created Out Of Mind.

Explore, challenge and shape your perceptions of dementias through science and the creative arts. Creating a society that supports and includes those living with a dementia is a major challenge – and opportunity. In this online course, spread across four weeks, discover how the arts can create common ground between people, and in doing so, learn what we can all do to improve the quality of life and care for people living with different dementias.

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 helping to care or support someone who has dementia  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.

Starts from 1 February 2021
