About EVA

EVA is a project for 2012 – 2013 which aims to involve older people and those with dementia in radio and arts practice.  We are especially grateful to the Baring Foundation, the Nominet Trust and the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation for supporting this work. It follows on from our our last project with older people in isolated rural areas (Soundings) and will be followed by a project working with older people in care homes around the theme of home.

EVA has a number of different strands…EVA Radio, Life Story Boxes, EVA Online (that’s where you are now!!) and Artist’s Commissions.  You can find out about all of these strands by navigating your way around the site.

 

Project Aims

  • to create a sustainable opportunity for older people and those with dementia to be actively involved in creative arts and radio production
  • to value the stories and experiences of older people, and those with dementia, and support them to reinterpret these for wider dissemination
  • to develop opportunities for challenging perceptions and stigma around older people, mental health and dementia
  • to enable those with early stage dementia to maintain and develop an interest and learn new skills, engage with creativity and to value their individuality

 

 

About Aune Head Arts

Aune Head Arts is an independent arts organisation working in the southwest of England making new work which looks at the relationship between art, people and place.

We commission artists to make new work in rural settings
and work closely with our local communities in and around Dartmoor. We believe the arts are enriching for our health, our environment, our society and our selves.

Through our work we know that everyone is capable of creative expression
and that collaboration between contemporary artists and communities can produce work which is exciting, challenging and stimulating.
