Creative Carers

Creative Carers is a west cork based programme providing creative and social engagement opportunities for family carers, to explore arts and cultural interests while being responsive to their needs. Managed by Uillinn West Cork Arts Centre as part of Arts for Health Partnership, the programme is delivered by a team of professional artists each with distinctly different practices and expertise in working in care settings.

Creative Carers is delivered in four strands:

  • Creative Series are weekly sessions exploring visual art, music or dance facilitated by artists in a social and relaxed setting.
  • Creative Carers at Home is a unique approach to research and investigate ways to support creative activities for Carers in their home with an artist. Available by referral from the HSE and local development workers.
  • In The Picture is a Dementia Friendly Gallery tour at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre, enjoyed with a shared cup of tea and co-delivered with dementia care specialist and artist.
  • Carer Events & Projects work with community coordinators to present once off events and projects in community spaces about West Cork such as drop-in workshops, activity projects and information check in points.

Services are Free of charge or with minimal booking fee to confirm a place.
