At Creativity In Care we believe people can go beyond accepted limitations, – (limitations set by diagnosis, expectation or cultural norms), – to improve quality of life, inclusion and joy in care and community settings. This happens through creative learning and participatory arts… making connections that go beyond words and memory.
We offer a range of workshops, projects and consultancy. Creativity In Care is 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.
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.
Creativity In Care works with people of all ages and abilities. We help to increase knowledge and understanding of mental well-being and recovery factors. 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.
Talk to us live every Monday on Twitter (@creativitycare), where we co-host with Hilgos Foundation #AlzChat, an interactive discussion for people living with, or caring for someone with diagnosed with dementia.
