We can’t all get to the gallery …

This training offers a first look at Armchair Gallery – a forthcoming app created by City Arts Nottingham, designed specifically for older people, and to bring art and culture into the home.

Participants will learn how to run creative art sessions for older people, including people living with dementia, using the app as part of a specially devised workshop model.

This training will cover:

  • A preview of the Armchair Gallery app – which offers virtual tours of seven world class cultural venues
  • Using art and heritage artefacts to inspire and engage older people with dementia
  • Practical advice on using iPads or Android tablets with older people
  • Using the ‘Timeslips’ method as part of a creative workshop
  • The importance of multi-sensory exploration, and how to address all five senses in your workshops.

Cost £25 (lunch provided)

Suitable for health providers, care staff and creative practitioners working in a range of settings.
