Artstormproject was commissioned by Plymouth City Council's Arts and Heritage Service to run an exciting pilot art based project in February 2014.
The project is called 'Arts and Minds', and ran at the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery for one year. It provided creative opportunities for isolated people living with mild to moderate dementia and their carers. The project was designed to involve a number of key partners to deliver a year's programme of artistic activity, based at the city museum for a small group of self-selected participants.
Artstormproject Artists were chosen through an application process because of their ability to collaborate creatively, and the diversity of their creative skills; ceramics, painting, textiles, fashion reminiscence, printmaking and sculpture.
Memory Matters were commissioned to evaluate the impact of the work and to provide dementia training and awareness with Arts4Dementia for the Museum Staff, Artists and Volunteers involved in the project.
