Dementia and the arts internationally

David Carter and Alice Thwaite provide a comparison between the UK and the international scene in the field of creative dementia care.

In this video David Carter (Director, The Baring Foundation) and Alice Thwaite (Co-director, Equal Arts) provide a comparison between the UK and the international scene in the field of creative dementia care.

This includes:

  • How the provision of arts-based practices for people living with dementia differ within the countries of the UK, as well as the differences between the UK and other countries

  • Examples of joint initiatives that have been run between The Baring Foundation in the UK and abroad in Europe

  • Ways in which the UK can draw inspiration from initiatives in Holland and the US

  • Insight into a programme that has been run jointly with the Baring Foundation and the British Council focusing on the exchange of artists with Korea, Japan and Taiwan

Do you have any recommendations of arts-based programme for people living with dementia that you have encountered outside of the UK? If so, please share these in the Communal Pinboard at the end of this week.
