Matinée: Creativity at home
Creativity at home by Matinée combines conversation, writing, crafts, and visual arts for people living with dementia and memory loss in Derbyshire
Matinée is an invitation to people living with dementia (and their carers) to get involved in something free, creative and inspiring from the safety and comfort of their own home.
You only need a telephone and a letterbox to take part. Matinée have a fabulous team of artists who will invite you to explore either creative writing, crafts or visual arts combined with a regular phone call and lively conversation to keep you active and focused from home.
Matinée's professional artists are experienced in working with people living with dementia. They will chat with you to find topics and themes to play with creatively, and you'll be surprised with what happens next!
The project offers 8 regular sessions working 1:1 with one artist. Sessions are available from September 2021.
