INVITATION (From 2009 Conference)
On behalf of the Conference hosts, Aged and Community Services SA & NT Inc. and the Society for the Arts in Dementia Care (Australia) Inc. I am pleased to invite you to attend the 4th International Conference on Creative Expression, Communication and Dementia.

There is growing evidence that demonstrates that creative arts programs provide many therapeutic benefits as well as adding to the quality of life for seniors living in aged care facilities or the community. The arts have an important value for nurturing the spirit, unlocking the human potential, boosting self esteem and providing meaningful connection with others.

The conference provides a great opportunity to promote the value of the arts in aged and community care, and for people working in the aged and community care sector and in the arts sector to gain exposure to high profile international experts in the field. It will provide an excellent opportunity for delegates to exchange ideas about the positive value of active participation in the creative arts for older people and gain insights into creative approaches that can improve the lives of older people.

This event is the first of its kind in Australasia and promises to be stimulating and informative in bringing together performing artists, seniors, health practitioners, international experts, researchers, managers and policy makers to discuss service models of excellence and to highlight the positive impact of arts in aged and community services.

We look forward to meeting you at the 4th International Conference on Creative Expression, Communication and Dementia and hope you enjoy all this event has to offer.
