It is designed to be as accessible as possible. In it you will find information about the Dementia & Imagination project; some key ingredients for delivering research-informed visual arts projects; case studies, a set of guiding principles, quotes from people involved in the programme, and some recommendations. By clicking HERE you can also download a write up of the Research Protocol that has been published in the BMJ Open, and the Methodological Approach published in Cultural Trends. The handbook is freely available online and we’ll have hardcopies available soon, more details of which will follow on this blog or at the D&I website.
The Arts empower children & improve life chances. The Cultural Learning Alliance has published its new core document ImagineNation: the value of cultural learning. The document pulls together all the available evidence on the impact of the arts and culture to children’s lives, alongside quotes, stats and arguments from a wide range of sources including the Bank of England, LEPs, Police Commissioners and the Children’s Commissioner, parents, teachers and UCAS. The document can be used to help make the case for the importance of arts and heritage in the lives of children, young people and their families. Click HERE.
