'The Art of Caring' - The Arts Council of Northern Ireland
Wed 26 April 2017, 09:30 – 15:30 BST
The 'Art of Caring' Conference, organised to celebrate and strengthen the voice of older people through arts, is supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland National Lottery fund, through its Arts & Older People Programme, the Baring Foundation, and the Public Health Agency.
Join us as we look at the ‘Art of Caring’. We will explore the role and benefits arts can provide to care homes and carers, and hear first-hand from speakers from Europe and the UK on the benefits and importance of Art and Caring.
The Arts & Older People Programme provides opportunities for people to engage with the arts, promoting positive mental health and well-being, and helping to tackle issues like loneliness and isolation affecting our older citizens. The one-day conference is aimed at carers, those working in care homes, owners of care homes, and individuals who provide care through arts, will feature a range of speakers, and a number of engaging, informative workshops.
Date for closing registration – 31st March 2017.
