ARTZ in the Neighborhood

Co-Creating lasting programs in the community

Social and cultural factors influence how people experience life with dementia. Our programs have always been person-centered; how do they become community-centered too? They need to reflect Philadelphia’s diversity, for one thing. Dementia affects communities of color disproportionately, making access to quality-of-life interventions even more vital. “ARTZ in the Neighborhood” is responding to the different ways that different communities live with dementia, generating programs that are by and for the people of those communities.
