About Empowering people with memory problems

As a small nonprofit, empowering people with memory problems, we rely on donations from individuals like you. Every gift helps us maintain English & Spanish programs, both online and in-person.

Looking back on another challenging year, we are grateful to the Arts & Minds community, including our funders and supporters. Online programs in English and in Spanish started as a pandemic emergency response and continue to be offered weekly. Programs in museums and community centers around New York City allow participants to connect with art and creativity.

Arts & Minds is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving quality of life for all people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias through engagement with art. We partner with museums to provide meaningful art-centered activities that create positive emotional and cognitive experiences, enhance verbal and non-verbal communication, reduce isolation and build community. Our programs empower people with dementia, family members, professional caregivers and educators to strengthen social, emotional and spiritual bonds by engaging with art.
