We've teamed up with cultural and community venues across Newcastle and Gateshead for artist-led creative workshops.

All sessions are for people 55+ and those living with dementia and their carers.

Supported by our team, the workshops are informal, inclusive and provide an opportunity to come along, have a go and explore your creativity, no experience neccessary!

"I never really liked painting before, but with Lindsey's help I feel like I know how to use watercolours. I've found the sessions most enjoyable and relaxing and you can just get lost in the painting."

"I'm so enjoying this course, zooming out and about. I really feel like I'm there with everyone!"
