Nottingham Lakeside Arts

Nottingham Lakeside Arts is the University Of Nottingham’s public arts centre. Alongside our programme of public events we support University Of Nottingham students in one-off projects.
Being part of the Imagine Arts and Older People’s programme involved undergraduate music students visiting care homes over the course of seven months, exploring and sharing musical memories and facilitating musical workshops. This has been incredibly useful to students who want to improve their knowledge of and gain valuable experience working with people living with dementia, potentially opening avenues to pursue music therapy in the future. This project has given both residents and students an insight into the positive power of music.
