see what is coming up and what we’ve just done here

Twitter (@creativitycare) Facebook (creativity in care)  Creativity In Care’s work is about feeling connected and more resilient. Our focus is on wellness. We imagine a world where each person realises how amazing he or she is.

Our aim is to improve quality of life, inclusion and joyfulness by listening to people’s experiences of mental health, dementia, long-term conditions, family-life, care services, community engagement etc, We respond through community led arts initiatives and creative learning programmes. These support identity and meaningful interactions; increase a sense of hopefulness, and inspire better care and communication.

What does Creativity In Care do?

We help reduce health inequalities and address social determinants of health (WHO) through  learning programmes and socially engaged arts. Our Nine Lives project, funded by People’s Health Trust was chosen as an Arts, Health and Wellbeing good practice project. The project increased collective control, self-esteem, independence and confidence, and built social links and ties. Learning programmes take place in the community (e.g. family care-givers courses) and in care settings (e.g. care home programmes).

Through connection, people become empowered to go beyond limitations… to experience inclusion and joyfulness. Creative learning processes celebrate life and we dwell in the land of possibility.
