Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging | A critical exploration of creativity and dementia at the intersection of embodiment, relationality, and citizenship

Calendar: Scientific Events

Decreasing stigma associated with dementia and fostering dementia-inclusive communities are key public health priorities across national and international settings. Engagement with the arts is increasingly advocated to reduce stigma and to increase social inclusion of persons living with dementia. However, for the most part, the arts are implemented as a therapeutic intervention with the aim of reducing neuropsychiatric symptoms associated with dementia and improving cognitive and physical health outcomes. The enrichment that the arts bring to human lives is thus obscured by treating the arts exclusively to a therapeutic end. Dr.Pia Kontos will discuss this limitation with reference to a relational model of citizenship that recognizes corporeality and relationality as fundamental to human existence, and that brings a new and critical dimension to understanding the importance of creativity in the context of dementia.
