SoundUp Arts Community Interest Company

SoundUp Arts is a CIC which brings music and creative activities to people living with dementia (PLWD), their carers and older people. We expand creative opportunities for people living with dementia through the development of resources, participatory workshops and specialised training of the care and arts workforce.

We are a small CIC with a strong mission to make the creative arts more accessible, inclusive and engaging for people living with dementia, carers and older people. To date we have developed participatory workshops, concerts and choirs to groups of people living with dementia and older people. We work with a collective of early-career and emerging creative arts practitioners to develop high-quality engaging resources for people living with dementia and older people in the community and in residential care. We run training for the care and arts workforce, expanding our impact by up-skilling our community to use creative facilitation in meaningful ways.
