Abstract

Artistic and creative activities are increasingly recognised as tools to support people with dementia. They can share these activities on equal terms with everyone else and the arts can help them to overcome the barriers they often face through cultural participation and social engagement. Participation in artistic activities provides mental stimulation, exercises existing skills and offers new learning experiences.
