Background and expertise: Over the past 6 year Collective Encounters has amassed considerable experience working in the field of arts and dementia. We have delivered a long-term programme of creative arts workshops with people with dementia and their carers in community and care home settings; toured performances in care homes; developed performance work to be used in a training context for health care professionals and delivered a training programme for carers in how to use the arts more effectively in their work. We have supported this practical work with an extensive research programme that began with a full literature review of academic and grey literature dealing with best practice and the benefits of arts and dementia. Publications include: Arts and Dementia: a summary report, ask A pocket guide to arts activities for people with dementia
and a series of advice sheets for artists.
Background to the training day: Co-facilitated by Collective Encounters’ Artistic Director and Head of Participation, ampoule this is a full-day training session introducing experienced artists to working with people with dementia. Training methodology will involve tutor presentation, more about group discussion and action learning sets. Participants will be provided with high quality materials to take away with them to support and remind them of their learning.
By the end of the day participants will have developed:
The training day will be enhanced by a range of resources for participants to take away including Collective Encounters’ policy and procedure documents, a bibliography for further reading and support materials from the day.
