A newly published study of the Art Gallery of New South Wales’s art access program for people living with dementia highlights the pleasurable experience that looking at art brings for people with dementia as well as their carers, family members and health care professionals.

The study, Arts engagement for people with dementia by Dr Gail Kenning PhD, University of Technology, Sydney, was commissioned by the Gallery in 2015. Alzheimer’s Australia NSW supports the UTS findings as they provide a valuable evidence-base for the outcomes of such programming.
