Equal Arts’ innovative and original projects bring real purpose, connection, friendship and joy to the older people they help and we are privileged and excited to be working with them. We love the idea that each time one of our customers buys something beautiful for their home they are helping Equal Arts to continue their amazing work.” Equal Arts Co-Director Douglas Hunter added “There is a growing understanding that creativity is intact long after other cognitive functions decline. We see first-hand the impact the arts have - helping staff to engage with care home residents, encouraging them to explore their creativity and live in the moment.
