ARTZ Profiled in Philadelphia Citizen

The Philadelphia Citizen recently published an article profiling ARTZ Philadelphia. The article focuses on our ARTZ @ The Museum program at the Barnes Foundation. The article also delves into the philosophy that motivates all of our programs: making our city a more welcoming and supportive place for people living with dementia and their care partners.

Shifrin says the goal for such visits is to also build empathy on the part of museums and art centers. “Our goal is for the institutions we work with to, yes, continue doing programs with us, but also to make sure that our valuing of people we serve rubs off on them,” she says. “And it becomes an absolutely shared dedication.” It’s work that contributes to ARTZ’s mission in Philadelphia becoming a place where people with dementia and their families will be as welcomed as anyone.
