Creating with Dementia

Posted: 15/03/18

Lower Sixth student, Daisy Coles, started a programme of free art workshops for people with Dementia and their carers as part of her participation in her Gold Duke of Edinburgh award. She first attended a specialised arts training seminar put on by the charity Arts4Dementia, then she interviewed art facilitators, and met a local councillor who agreed to provide the Hammersmith & Fulham Town Hall as a free venue. With the help of Libby Ross and Katya Sloboda-Bolton, Daisy successfully organised a series of art workshops in a local Ravenscourt church hall in November and in the Town Hall last month. 

‘It is so inspiring to see the sense of satisfaction and confidence-building these workshops give the people with Dementia, as well as their carers!’

This multi-generational team called ‘Creating with Dementia’ is currently running a third series of free Art Workshops in Barnes thanks to the generous support of the charity, Age Unlimited, which, coincidentally, was founded by an Old Dolphin!
