Creativity In Care work is values led, so everything we do is held within a framework that adapts to people’s preferences. There’s usually a good mix of theory, discussion, practical fun and reflection. One of our strengths is in making programmes accessible to a wide range of people for a richer experience.
Our objectives include 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 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.
