Glitský is an online art gallery displaying the beautiful artworks of individuals suffering from dementia. The goal is to invigorate the brain and promote the mental stimulation by doing and looking at art. Research shows the great impact art has on perception, memory, skills, communication and visuospatial functions. We designed art workshops in collaboration with the occupational therapist Annetta Ingimundardóttir and wanted the workshops to have a variety of themes to give people who suffer from dementia something back – good moments, creativity, conversations and joy. Our web gallery is a platform for their works of art to really shine, thereby hopefully promoting people‘s well-being all together.
Project in collaboration with fine artist Guðný Sara Birgisdóttir (1993).
