Creative Age – Equal Arts

for participants
for carers

An inclusive project, Creative Age offers friendly and informal creative sessions for older people with dementia, long-term health conditions and their carers.

You can get involved in Creative Age sessions at venues including BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (mima), Hatton Gallery in Newcastle and National Glass Centre and Arts Centre Washington, both in Sunderland.

There are also Creative Age projects taking place weekly at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, and from this autumn, Northern Print in Newcastle.

And now...Creative Age Durham has arrived!
