ARTmail Participation of Older Adults with Cognitive Limitations: Program Benefits and Design Challenges

To evaluate the impact of participatory art programs on the moods and social connections of older adults, including those with dementia, the University of North Carolina Greensboro and the Creative Aging Network-North Carolina conducted a pilot study of ARTmail, a 10-week art exchange project. Examine the study’s results, participant testimonies, and recommendations for improving cognitive and social abilities through the arts.

Presentation Outcomes

  • Participants will gain research results on seniors with dementia in participatory creative arts programs.
  • Participants will learn the perspectives of seniors, staff, and volunteers on the participatory creative arts program design and delivery methods.
  • Participants will discover an evidence-based model for integrating participatory creative arts in adult care communities.
