In Autumn 2020, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in partnership with the Creative Ireland Programme launched an inclusive art programme, Art & Ageing, to help older adults and people living with dementia to combat the social side effects of the global pandemic. The programme was aimed at both adults cocooning in their home and those living in residential settings.
This report contains an overview of the Art & Ageing programme as well as key findings and qualitative feedback collected from 66 stakeholders including participants, Activity Coordinators, staff and volunteers working with older people.
