To mark world Alzheimer’s Month, GBHI is hosting a webinar on September 6th 2022 in collaboration with Arts 4 Dementia entitled “Co-creating Arts for Brain Health—A Global Perspective”. 

In this webinar, we will showcase the diverse creative activities of Atlantic Fellows for Equity in Brain Health at GBHI that have been co-produced with and for people living with dementia that generate powerful messages of hope, engagement, inclusion and connection. There is so much to be learned from the innovation emanating from different countries and geographies, and this webinar will illustrate the richness and diversity of a number of these global creative interdisciplinary activities. 

The webinar will feature five 10-minute presentations from Atlantic Fellows, followed by a panel discussion of experts in arts and brain health, social prescribing, and transdisciplinary approaches for people living with dementia. 

Who Should Attend?

If your work involves arts for health or creative aging, social prescribing, dementia prevention, arts for people affected by dementia or you wish to extend your programmes for early-stage dementia to people at the very onset – keen to preserve their cultural interests – or are already running such programmes for individuals and family partners and wish to know more about the social prescribing referral route to literary opportunities, this webinar shares insights, progress and learning from international experts.
