It provides art-centered activities to create positive cognitive experiences and enhance communication. Its programs empower people with dementia, family members and professional caregivers to strengthen social, emotional, and spiritual bonds by engaging with art. Through shared engagement with art in conversation with educators and one another, adults living with cognitive challenges experience social connection and self-discovery.
Established in 2010 by Columbia University clinical neurologist James M. Noble, M.D. and museum educator Carolyn Halpin-Healy, Arts & Minds takes an interdisciplinary approach to dementia and art. The organization provides consulting and training for museums, caregivers and medical professionals.
