At Creativity In Care we believe creativity and compassion are at the heart of wellbeing, inclusion and joyfulness; empowering people to go beyond limitations through a creative learning process that celebrates life and dwells in the land of possibility.

Decoupage ©CIC session2We offer a range of workshops, projects and consultancy.  Creativity In Care includes a team of professional artists, with specialist art-forms who also have backgrounds in care and person-centred counselling. These combinations help us listen and respond more personally, enabling meaningful co-creations.  Creativity In Care courses for care home staff, artists and facilitators have also been developed over several years in lecturing in health & social care by Karrie Marshall.

Book now for our 2-day programme: Positive Dementia Care – a creative toolkit.

Our arts projects lead to exhibitions, films, books, performances or other experiences, giving voice to people who may not have had opportunities to be heard, due to illness, disability or culture difference. However, the artistry is in our shared creative process… the alchemy of transformation between us as artists and people who bring their narratives or being-ness. For three years we have been developing a strong values base that underpins everything we do. The work is based on several years of  practice research, evaluations and reflections.

We work with people diagnosed with long term conditions, people with dementia through to end of life care, people living with mental ill health or other disabilities. We also work in conjunction with care-givers, family members, people going through criminal justice systems, community organisations and the general public. Our work includes cross-sectional projects for genuine inclusivity.

Creativity Is all-inclusive.
