Engagement Arts

Evidence shows that as communication declines in the course of a progressive neurocognitive disease, the arts can still give voice to an individual’s inner self. With this in mind, the Cleveland Clinic Education team has developed several evidenced informed, innovative, and interactive programs designed to support patients and their care partners in their journey. The programs are also open to the greater community which has built increased awareness, understanding, empathy, and camaraderie toward those living with various neurological conditions. 

Unless otherwise noted, all programs below are offered free of charge thanks to the support of our generous donors.
