Creative producer focused on interdisciplinary live art collaborations.
Words of Strength
If we wish to reduce the scale and impact of dementia in our society, it is essential to listen and learn from people living with dementia and their caregivers.
Gillian is interested in working with artists and scientists to help build intergenerational connections between people living with dementia, caregivers, and the broader community.
As an Atlantic Fellow, Gillian hopes to facilitate new interdisciplinary collaborations that will help foster an environment for aging with dignity and joy; improving the overall quality of life for people living with dementia, and their caregivers.
In New York City, the arts provide us with an opportunity to connect, collaborate and create a social infrastructure that emphasizes participation and community engagement for people of all abilities, at all stages of life.
