Conference Volunteer


Arts 4 Dementia is developing outreach at arts venues for people in the early stages of dementia and their carers. Our conference at the Royal Albert Hall on 14 November will present evidence of the benefits of artistic stimulation for people with memory loss. Leaders in the field of arts, mental health and care services will establish guidelines.

Keynote speakers will include Harry Cayton OBE, Chief Executive of the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence, and Baroness Greengross OBE, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia.

Delegates will comprise arts organisations, people with dementia, care managers, GPs, carers, Admiral nurses, community mental health teams, psychiatrists, social services and local councils. A film will be made of key proceedings.

Volunteers are invited to help prepare for and assist at the conference.
