What we create at Creativity In Care is values led. Everything comes from what people tell us they want. There is usually a good mix of theory, discussion, practical fun and reflection. One of our strengths is that we create programmes accessible to a wide range of people for a richer experience.
Our memorandum of articles (or objectives) include that we create the following:
- We facilitate learning programmes for continuing professional development (care staff, artists, managers) about community engagement, arts and wellbeing, creative communication, positive dementia care and person-focused approaches.
We co create and deliver public learning programmes such as The ART of Caring for Self and Others; Healthy Brains; Peace Crafts; Poetry In Motion.
- We co create socially engaged arts projects with people of all ages and abilities. These usually lead to an exhibition about the topic or an arts installation; or a booklet by the participants to support other people or to share their creativity; or a performance or a film.
- We develop and produce learning resources (e.g. Permission Statements; Puppetry Connection Toolkits: Happiness Policy). Profits from these sales helps raise funds for the community projects, materials, transport and project costs to reach more people.
What we create together is awesome!
