imagine, create, share – National Day of Arts in Care Homes – 24 September 2021

“I don’t know how we would have survived lockdown without art”

Activity Co-ordinator

During Covid-19 we have seen and experienced the importance of art and creativity in care settings, and the beneficial outcomes for all the participants. We want to continue to shine a light on the importance of this work, which has been increasingly vital during the pandemic.
