Becoming a Creative Dementia Arts Professional
THURSDAY 30 JUNE 2016
10am – 4pm
North Oxford Association, OXFORD OX2 7DP
The aim of the day is to provide advice, guidance and information on key aspects of career development in arts and dementia for arts practitioners so that they can:
- Develop a personal Continuing Professional Development plan
- Develop a strategy for marketing, promotion and funding of their work
- Understand the legal framework for arts and dementia practice
- Undertake a SWOT analysis as part of developing a Business Plan
- Use reminiscence and life history to engage people with dementia
- Select an appropriate evaluation framework for an art programme
Presentations of key topics will be followed by roundtables all facilitated by experts offering those attending opportunities to participate in more bespoke Q&A discussions tailored to their needs and circumstances. Our experts for the day include John Killick, who uses poetry as a medium for hearing the voices of people with dementia and Dr Kate Hamlin, of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing who evaluated Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Good Times: Art for Older people community outreach programme.
Workshop fee of £50 covers refreshments and Becoming a Creative Dementia Arts Professional Toolkit with advice, information, references and useful websites.
