At Arts for Dementia we use the power of the arts to inspire people living with dementia to get creative, connect, learn new skills and most importantly, have fun.

Our free workshops aim to challenge, boost confidence and wellbeing through a variety of art forms from visual arts, drama, sculpture, dance and more.
