National Day of Arts in Care Homes – 24 September 2023

The National Day of Arts in Care Homes is an annual event that takes place on 24 September. The aim is to champion, promote and encourage arts engagement in care settings and highlight the health and wellbeing benefits for all involved.

In 2023 NAPA held a weeklong celebration of arts in care provision, culminating in the fifth National Day of Arts in Care Homes on Sunday 24 September. Watch recordings of online NAPA events focussing on different aspects of arts in care provision.

The theme for #AICH2023 was Reflections. We looked back at learning gained from the programme so far and tried to identify with care and arts partners what is most needed going forward to support this important work.

NAPA awarded prizes to selected registered events for The National Day. You can read about all the 13 finalists here.

NAPA will be sharing details of our campaign for 2024 soon.
