We’ve just finished our successful project Dancing with Dementia – in collaboration with the charity Jewish Care at a care home in Brighton, encouraging older residents with dementia to stay active, using music to trigger memories.
We’ve had a variety of activities and performers including music therapist Dominque Levack, Belly dancer Bettina, Sari dancing, Flamenco with Helena, Yoga sessions, and musical performance from students of Access to Music Brighton college.
Thanks to the Healthy Collaboration fund through Trust for Developing Communities for this support.

Strike a Light-Arts & Heritage has been awarded a grant by the Trust for Developing Communities – Healthy Community Fund for a Brighton project called Dancing with Dementia.
We’ll be working with dementia sufferers in a care home in the city as a pilot project from December 2016 to Spring 2017 with a variety of music and performance and freelance practitioners.
