Equal Arts – improving older people’s lives through creativity

equal arts

We are a leading creative ageing charity supporting older people and those living with Dementia in Gateshead, Newcastle and across the UK.

Our team works to improve the lives of older people through creativity and our arts activities around the North East provide creative opportunities to help improve people wellbeing.

Memory may diminish but imagination remains.

Our work focuses on giving people the opportunity to explore their imagination and live in the moment.

We strongly believe in the health benefits of the arts and support care staff and artists to deliver musical, visual and movement-based creative activities with active older people and those living with dementia.

“The impact on residents and staff has been amazing. We’ve got happy residents, it affects their health and wellbeing dramatically, and happy families who are getting involved. It works, try it, invest the time, you won’t regret it.”Jackie Murray, home manager at Oakdale Lodge
