Join us today, Thursday 11 February, to learn how a leading local arts organisation in Western Sydney, is improving the daily lives of people living in aged and dementia care. 

For a taste of what's in store, take a look at this ABC News article! 

In this webinar you’ll hear from:

Victoria Harbutt, Producer, Special Projects at Information and Cultural Exchange (I.C.E.) and

Sophia Markwell, General Manager at the Abel Tasman Village – an aged care facility based in Chester Hill, Sydney.

Victoria and Sophia will talk about their unique partnership, working with frail and dementia unit residents participating in an arts program, working with a range of contemporary artists.

They’ll also share the various ways they’ve measured the social impact of the program – reflecting on challenges and opportunities for the future.

'This is not the end of their life... the life that they have in the retirement village is full... it celebrates wellbeing.'

As always, there will be plenty of time to ask questions. 

We look forward to seeing you there!
