“The music and musicians have been fantastic. The residents look forward to the musicians coming and the variety of music reaches everybody....Watching their facial expressions and their hands moving in time with the music, you see the joy that the music is bringing.”

ArtsWay is a program of professional music concerts provided monthly by the not-for-profit Health Arts Society to elders in care homes. Over 2,700 concerts have been given across BC since 2006. Each 45-minute concert is performed by one to four paid musicians.

Elders in care homes experience intense feelings of loneliness and boredom. On average they have less than two years to live. Frailty isolates them from their former lives and from their community. They have sustained losses of family and friends, as well as the autonomy we take for granted. ArtsWay’s popular and communicative concerts are a vivid response to help alleviate our elders’ boredom in the last stage of their lives.

How to help ArtsWay
Please contribute to the cost of our elders attending ArtsWay concerts.
It doesn’t cost much to turn the residents’ lounge or dining room into a concert hall.

$3,600 provides 6 concerts
$600 provides an entire concert
$200 enables 10 or more elders to attend a concert


Help us to reach our target of
5,000 concerts by Dec 31, 2011



To reach our target of 5,000 events we need to raise $1,356,600.
