Arts and Dementia -
Did I do that?20 July - 25 August 2016
Location : Gallery 200, 200 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes
Over the past few years the word Dementia has been one that we hear more often, which is not surprising considering recent statistics state that around 800,000 people in the UK have dementia. The Art and Dementia programme at Arts for Health Milton Keynes is run in the belief that art can help override the stress and confusion of memory loss.
Featuring the work of people living with dementia, their carers and associate artists the exhibition Did I Do That? showcases artwork produced in our Arts and Dementia programme.
Did I Do That? does not explore dementia as a theme but rather presents an opportunity to showcase the work produced by people living with dementia. The exhibition demonstrates both the therapeutic benefits of creativity and the potential of people with dementia.
Alongside this work, the exhibition also includes work produced by our associate artists, exploring how community work can inform artistic practice.
