Engaging with older people


Projects 2011-2012


During 2011 and 2012, Engage Cymru continued to develop best practice in galleries engaging with socially isolated people, with an emphasis on arts and health, working in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council, Oriel Wrexham, North Wales Arts, Health and Wellbeing Stakeholders Group, and the BCUHB AIHWB Programme.


In July 2011, Engage Cymru delivered two 'Galleries, Arts and Health' seminars.
