The Creative Economy Health and Wellbeing Hub at FACT
The Creative Economy Health and Wellbeing Hub, based in FACT, put out a call earlier this month looking for individuals with a passionate interest in arts and cultural interventions in dementia care to join them for a day-long collaborative event.
The Arts and Cultural Interventions Lab gathers together experts from others sectors and aims to constructively discuss the challenges & opportunities in supporting the best of arts and cultural work in dementia care.
Participants come from a wide variety of perspectives in the field. Some come with a deep subject knowledge in a core area of arts and cultural work related to dementia care, for example with a focus on music, visual arts. Others will approach the dementia field from the perspective of psychology / neuroscience research, digital cultures and practices, and emerging creative technologies.
