Creative Age project is in partnership with Equal Arts. Creative Age North provides older people living with dementia and other long-term conditions and their carers the opportunity to take part in creative and inclusive activities, celebrate their achievements and support on-going activity through Challenge fundraising.
The aim is to improve participants creative confidence and sense of well-being whilst providing an opportunity to develop the skills and experience of artists working with people with dementia.
In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic and to safeguard the group these sessions have moved online. The group work with artist Claire Ford and arts organisation Equal Arts, who post the materials and creative packs needed for each session to the group.
East Durham Creates and the Let’s Meet Up Art group want to extend the invite out to more members of our community to get involved! If you have an early diagnosis of dementia or memory problems & live in East Durham please join us for fun, relaxed virtual sessions and who knows what art pack you will receive next through your letterbox! To join the group email Cat at firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a direct Facebook message.
