Event description

Description

The Chair and Directors of Creative Dementia Arts Network (CDAN) would love you to join them for our special friends and supporters event at St Hugh's College Oxford on Tuesday 10 March 2020.

We shall be showcasing 10 years of CDAN’s achievements through workshops, performances, discussions, presentations and an unmissable literary lunch.

The event, led by our Chief Executive, national experts and our FLOURISH alumni will focus on arts and dementia training for arts practitioners. Growing interest in arts for health, as evidenced by the NHS investment in social prescribing, means more demand for arts practitioners with the specialist knowledge and skills to involve people living with dementia in the arts.

So do join us and learn more about FLOURISH: CDAN’s flagship training and professional development programme for arts practitioners, care staff and other professionals, who use creative arts to engage with people with dementia.

Through FLOURISH, CDAN has trained arts practitioners to work in care homes, day centres, extra care housing, museums and art galleries, and we are now developing an arts and health FLOURISH as part of our new North Oxfordshire Arts Home from Hospital programme. Arts practitioners will be learning to engage patients with dementia on hospital wards and then connecting them to arts and activities following their discharge back into the community or into care homes.

Programme

9.45 Event starts with an Introduction to CDAN and FLOURISH

There will be morning and afternoon workshops led by expert practitioners and FLOURISH alumni. Delegates can participate in 2 workshops choosing from:

  • Dance with Rhonda Sparrey and Angela Conlan of Dance Creative, and Diane Amans and Dr Richard Coaten

  • Poetry with John Killick, Jane and John Spiro and Antosh Wojcik

  • Music with Kate Wilkinson, CDAN Music Lead and Ben Heaney, Music Health Service

  • Arts and crafts with Arts with Dr Lizzie Burns and Clare Carswell

13.00 - 14.30 A high point of the event is our Literary Lunch. Speakers include our patron, Nicci Gerrard, journalist, campaigner and author of What Dementia Teaches Us About Love and Marianne Talbot, Director of Studies in Philosophy at Oxford University Department for Continuing Education and author of Keeping Mum: Caring for someone with dementia. Do seize the opportunity to engage with our two wonderful speakers during their reflections on writing about the experience of care for a relative with dementia.

16.00 Tea and Networking

16.30 Special Event closes
