Dementia Friendly Lockdown Community Art Project

Creative Connections artwork currently on display, as part of an Arts Council England National Lottery funded project.

AN ART exhibition in Waterlooville is showcasing the creative skills of local people with dementia and their carers.

Our very own Kym Devine who runs the Creative Mojo Chichester Portsmouth And Surrounding Areas who has put the Creative Connections concept together said:

‘The artwork has been produced by people with dementia and their families or carers at home over the past 10 months.
‘The project aimed to inspire group members and give them more confidence to take time out and enjoy creative activities at home during the long months of Covid restrictions.
‘We’ve had a wide mix of people take part, some enjoyed art as a hobby in groups or at home before Covid and others were completely new to creating and hadn’t considered themselves ‘arty’.’
