Art Experiences

Arts and Cultural Access for people living with dementia, their care partners, families and communities.


Dementia-Inclusive, Intergenerational, Community Based Art

We believe that the arts are uniquely suited as a pathway toward building dementia-inclusive communities, because of their flexibility, accessibility, and relevancy to all generations and cultures.

Building on Elder Care Alliance’s vision of Engaging hearts, Transforming lives, and Erasing boundaries, the Dementia-Inclusive Communities Initiative brings creative resources and practical assistance to communities in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area. With the support of the Dementia-Inclusive Communities Director, community partners and stakeholders will be invited to collaboratively plan a series of experiential art events. Programming in 2019 will consist of at least six dementia-inclusive art experiences that will take place in San Francisco, and a series of curated conversations that will culminate in one convening focused on this work. If you are interested in attending, facilitating, or volunteering at an art experience, or would like to be one of our community partners, please join our mailing list or contact Sadie directly. We are specifically looking to partner with arts organizations, senior centers, subsidized housing for older adults, and organizations that provide support to caregivers or services for people with dementia who live at home.

Support for this project is generously provided by The San Francisco Foundation.
