We have 25 years experience delivering arts and older people’s projects. Our mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives by helping older people participate in high quality creative activities
Equal Arts aims to improve the quality of older people's lives, particuarly those living with dementia, who have little opportunity to get involved in arts activities. We aim to improve health and wellbeing, and raise awareness of the benefits that participation in the arts can offer.
We work with experienced professional artists to deliver projects in residential care homes, sheltered accomodation, hospitals, day centres, community and arts venues. We also run intergenerational projects, aimed at bringing communities together.
Equal Arts aims to:
- to support and train artists to ensure good practice
- to work with partners to raise the status of the field
- to help combat the isolation of older people through participatory arts projects
