As the creative part of the brain can remain undamaged for years, engaging in arts activity:
Arts activities (practised to successful effect in care settings) are not easily available in the vital early stages of the disease. This project aims to redress that gap in Stoke and North Staffordshire.
This project is funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and delivered by New Vic Education with support from Douglas Macmillan, Potteries Museum and Art Gallery and Approach North Staffordshire.
