Building Dementia
Capability in the Arts

Region 2 Arts Council invites artists and arts program leaders to increase their capacity to develop/expand opportunities that more successfully engage arts patrons and participants with memory loss, and related cognitive or sensory impairments, in the arts experience.
This workshop includes:
  • A Virtual Dementia Tour facilitated by Judi Weiss from the Dancing Sky Area Agency on Aging.
  • An opportunity to learn successful strategies for engagement from artists and arts program leaders who have done this work.
  • Time to debrief the Tour with fellow participants and discuss potential applications to various arts disciplines.
