The Ventura County Community Foundation has awarded Studio Channel Islands a $28,820 grant to support its arts and health programs.
Funding will be used to expand SCI’s Memory Cafes, which are creative social events for individuals with memory loss and their caregivers; workshops for children in bereavement counseling; and stroke survivor art classes.
Funding for the grant comes from the Ruth Daily Livingston Fund.
According to Peter Tyas, SCI’s executive director, research shows that participation in the arts has a large impact in improving the well-being of individuals and the community. To further this, Studio Channel Islands has been developing a partnership with Camarillo Health Care District.
