About Arts 4 Dementia
Arts 4 Dementia (A4D) is a charity (No ) founded in 2011. Based in King’s Cross, London, we:
Why. Creative skills can remain vibrant for years after the onset of dementia. Neuroscientists and psychologists, supported by A4D’s evaluation, conferences and reports, have demonstrated that engaging in artistic activity is a highly effective non-pharmacological way to reawaken and re-stimulate cognitive ability.
Provision gap. At present on diagnosis, people may be given cognitive stimulation therapy but then they may be left alone to cope with increasing confusion, distress and isolation for six to twelve months, often until – as one memory service head told us – crisis hits.
Impact. The services A4D delivers make a profound difference to families coping with early stage dementia, to carers as much as to those with dementia. The workshops invigorate and restore confidence, energy and sense of purpose and normality in the community. A4D publications serve as valued toolkits for arts organisations.
I realise I have been working 1000% for J since his diagnosis. But when I take him to bbodance, Danielle makes a big difference for me as well. I’m doing something not only for his brain, but also for my own.

Having been to many workshops (so feel that I am qualified to say) I thought it was fantastic, it was inspirational and uplifting (which was a surprise). The format of the day worked really well and Aubrey was a humorous, engaging and an extremely knowledgeable speaker and your insights were invaluable too. It was fantastic to meet so many like-minded people from such varied artistic practices and backgrounds. It was a thoroughly enlightening day.
