CTC have been approached by Katy Luxton, of Endelienta (https://endelienta.org.uk/)to take part in a wonderful Dementia arts project, working with dementia/vulnerable people in Camelford, Bodmin and Wadebridge.
The project will start in February with a performance by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, on 12 February 2.30-4pm at the Betjeman Centre, Wadebridge.
It is hoped that the music will prompt memories. Participants will work with Janie McDonald (and some art students) to explore their memories through music in friendly, no pressure informal sessions. They will be using photography, colour, fabric and stitch to create textile based artwork.
It is an 8-week project, and CTC’s role would be to:
- Liaise with residents of Camelford (including Anvil Court residents, Pop in Centre and Memory Café) to collate a list of people interested in participating.
- Enlisting help with each session. Whilst we appreciate that you may not be able to help at every session, some continuity with the participants would be valuable.
They need at least 2 volunteers to help with opening up the venue and staying to help make teas and coffees.
Can you let me know if any of you are interested in participating or helping with the sessions and which sessions you can help with?
There will be a training/information session (to familiarise ourselves with the challenges that living with Dementia can bring) led by Tim Jones from Wadebridge Memory Café – date to be confirmed.
Key Dates: Camelford Hall, Clease Road, Camelford, weekly from 2-4pm (Thursdays in Conference Room)
