Creative Dementia Arts Network Conference

Thursday 27 June 2017


One Day Seminar/Conference


From £25


We are delighted to be holding our conference in collaboration with MHA, a national provider of care and support for older people. MHA runs care homes, extra care housing, Live at Home services and day centres in 200 areas of the UK. At the heart of MHA’s high quality care is its music therapy team of 19 award winning music therapists who offer some 1,900 residents in 54 specialist dementia care homes regular opportunities to participate in music and song besides working with individual residents. MHA’s commitment to seeking to evidence its music therapy offer extends to supporting an active programme of research including collaboration with Live Music Now’s initiative to establish a Choir in Every Care Home.

Our 6th Creative Dementia Arts Network conference is once again designed to deliver what past delegates have told us is an excellent varied programme that blends research with practice, lectures with workshops and space and time for networking and which, importantly, not only meets the professional development needs of specialist practitioners and many others working in arts and dementia but is also a highly informative event for those with a professional or personal interest in arts and/or dementia.
