We are working to make Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange dementia-friendly and this year’s Christmas campaign, Creating New Memories, will help us achieve that. Everyone, whatever their age or circumstance, is entitled to enjoy the arts and participate in cultural life. We know from our work in care homes, and from talking to the Dementia Action Alliance and Alzheimer’s Society, of the enormous benefits to health and wellbeing sociable creativity brings to those suffering memory loss, and to their carers.

With your support we can create a warm and welcoming age-friendly environment at both venues, and establish regular tea, cake and art sessions at The Exchange for those with dementia and their carers.

We are working with the Big Give so that every penny given by you is matched by pledges already made. Our target this year is £3,500 and The Big Give Christmas Campaign will be open for donations from midday Tuesday 27 Nov to midday Tuesday 4 Dec. If you’d like a reminder to donate, please email [email protected]
