With our Handmade Wellbeing Conference and Exhibition launching on Wednesday 22 March, there has been lots of activity going on with the project.
There was much discussion on the importance of access to art and crafts, especially for people living with dementia and physical frailties. It was agreed that it would be beneficial to have funding for artistic activities for older people at home and in care settings. We also talked about the benefits of artistic activities for carers.
Janine concluded by extending an invitation to to our Handmade Wellbeing Conference and Exhibition at Tonedale, Wellington taking place later this month, showcasing the work that has been produced in Wellington care homes.
