Creative Arts East runs free regular workshops across Norfolk that help older people (including carers, those living with a dementia and other long-term health conditions) engage and participate in high-quality music and dance activities. This programme has a hugely positive impact in terms of improving wellbeing and decreasing loneliness and isolation amongst our participants, who represent some of the most vulnerable people in our society. In November 2019, we were awarded the great honour of winning the prestigious Royal Society for Public Health ‘Arts & Health’ Award for the Our Day Out project.
Adapting to a remote format, Creative Arts East has put together some videos and are sending out wellbeing arts packs to enjoy at home.
