Our mission is to provide people with dementia and their care partners opportunities for self-expression and for the restoration of their self-esteem and dignity, regardless of their color, culture, where they live or their economic resources. We achieve this mission through evidence-based programs that connect people living with dementia and their care partners – in their full diversity – with artists, cultural organizations and each other.
ARTZ Philadelphia was founded on the belief that people living with dementia should be accorded the benefits of well-being and quality of life that others enjoy. We offer opportunities for interactions around arts and culture that turn this belief into reality. Dementia does not discriminate, therefore we are committed to ensuring that access to the resources we offer is equitable and inclusive while giving expression to individual and communal creativity.
