ARTVentures™

ARTVenturesTM is an exploration of creative expression for people with Alzheimer’s disease. This program gives families, friends and other care providers an opportunity to create a connection with someone who has become disconnected due to this illness. Creative expression offers people with dementia new pathways to communicate thoughts and feelings and builds bridges that reconnect them to love, friendship, memories, their families and daily life.
People with mild to moderate memory loss have difficulty expressing themselves, but they still have much to say and share with others. ARTVenturesTM encourages them to explore new paths of creative expression by incorporating the talents of seven Artists in Residence. These artists engage participants in improvisational theater, dance and movement, sculpture, pottery, poetry and story-telling, and music.
Sometimes, exceptionally difficult situations, such as those that confront people with Alzheimer’s disease, provide opportunities to accomplish things they might not have otherwise achieved. We have the opportunity to redefine what is possible for people living with dementia and you can help with a contribution to ARTVenturesTM.
We offer special recognition for gifts at the following levels:
· Patron of ARTVenturesTM $ 5,000
· Full Artist in Residence Fellowship $ 2,000
· Partial Artist in Residence Fellowship $ 1,000
· Friend of the Arts $ 500
