Connect the Dots is a charitable trust working to improve the lives of older people through creative projects.
To use creativity as a tool to improve the health and wellbeing of older people in New Zealand.
Older people are engaged in creativity, empowered and connected to their communities.
We have a small team of arts educators who work across our creative projects. Our core project, Make Moments, is a visual arts project that welcomes older people and people living with dementia into art galleries around Auckland for art making and art discussion. Our more intensive project, Toi Ako, matches a practising artist with 2-3 older people in care homes for arts mentoring towards an exhibition.
