Save the Last Dance is a forthcoming intergenerational project led by the Creative Dementia Arts Network (CDAN) in collaboration with Fusion Arts.
The project will bring together young people and older people who are living with dementia through artistic activity and conversations. Participants will use art, creative writing and music as a focus to share memories and experiences, showcase these in a Zine and help plan and organise a dissemination event. Aiming to increase intergenerational understanding of the condition, the programme provides opportunities to share and exchange experiences, all while being creative and developing new skills. Overall, the project hopes to promote social connections, enhance wellbeing and increase self-esteem and confidence amongst both parties, enhancing feelings of community understanding.
Fusion Arts work with artists, groups and communities from across Oxfordshire and beyond to support a variety of imaginative and socially engaged projects.
