Abstract:

Based on visits to a wide range of projects funded by the Baring Foundation, Arts Adviser Kate Organ has in this publication sought to distil what is important in working with older people and the significance it has for an artist’s own practice. She asks: is the process as important as the product? What is the relationship of reminiscence and life story work to arts in older age? What role does participatory arts with older people have in the wider public realm? Who is in control – the artist or the participant? Is it useful to think of a field of practice that specialises in Arts and Older People?
