Arts in care homes

A week-long celebration of the arts in care will culminate in the National Day of Arts in Care Homes (#AICH2023) on September 24.  This annual event, launched by the National Activity Providers Association (NAPA), focuses on creativity in care settings and the ways in which this supports health and wellbeing.  Care providers and partners such as arts and cultural organisations have been invited to join in by organising events to celebrate the day.  “We are very proud of what has been achieved so far during the NAPA Arts in Care Homes programme and we are looking forward to the fifth annual National Day of Arts in Care Homes on 24 September,” said NAPA Executive Director Hilary Woodhead. “It has been wonderful to watch the support for this event growing each year and to be able to highlight the wealth of good work being done, involving a wide range of arts in care settings. This year we also hope to identify what is most needed to develop this work going forward, in order to make arts in every care home a reality”.  For further information, go to
