The Arts and Dementia: Impact and Implementation will be held at the Jubilee Conference Centre, Triumph Road, Nottingham NG8 1DH on Thursday, 20th September, 2018. Artists, people living with dementia, carers and academics will discuss the arts as a medium for leisure, care and learning in dementia. To demonstrate some approaches we are thrilled to welcome cartoonist, Tony Husband, author of Take Care, Son. Blue Skies Singing Group, will be performing and there is a chance to see a preview of a new, research-based play, Silva Lining’s Care Plan, as well as original work by internationally-acclaimed photographer, Cathy Greenblat.
