About the event

Join us for Creativity and the Dementia-Friendly Church where we will be exploring the power of creative approaches to support those living with dementia.

What is the event all about?

Living with dementia presents many challenges. The experience of ongoing loss can be devastating, often leaving a deep sense of disconnection. Yet, as we face the challenge of finding ways to connect, creative approaches can offer new ways forward. Involving art, music and play can help us develop new opportunities for positive relationships and interactions.

Livability’s Dementia-Friendly Churches Programme engages church communities in considering practical responses to dementia, resourcing  worship, theology, community partnering and encouraging participation.

What will the event cover?

Hearing from those with direct experience of experimenting with new approaches, exploring creative tools, we will also explore how our theology and worship can provide inspiration through the ups and downs of living with dementia.

Creativity and the Dementia-Friendly Church is:

  • An event to celebrate creativity and its relationship to dementia through a series of inspiring talks, practical workshops, and theological reflection.
  • An opportunity to share the challenges,  exploring supporting someone who is living with dementia as well as their carers.
  • An invitation to churches, people living with dementia and their carers, health and social care practitioners, faith-based community and voluntary sector organisations

Who is this for?

If you, or your church wants to reach out and support people with dementia and their carers in your community, then this event is for you.
