Subject: Free Art Program for People with Dementia

To Whom It May Concern,

This email is to inform you of a new and exciting 10 week art program being run at the Museum of Contemporary Art for people who have dementia. The program, Artful, has been developed by educators at the MCA and in conjunction with Alzheimer's Australia to encourage older adults with cognitive decline in art viewing and art making -- see:

In collaboration with the University of Sydney -- see:

research is currently being carried out on Artful to explore the benefits of such art programs to people with dementia, and their carers. If you have any patients, customers or patrons who may be interested in participating in this free initiative at the MCA, please pass on the information attached, or feel free to display the poster at your premises.

So far, the MCA has enrolled 5 rounds of participants in their free program, and the feedback received from participants has been overwhelmingly positive. If you would like to know more about the art program or the research study, please do not hesitate to contact me on the details below.

Warm regards,

Stacey West | Research Assistant
