We are pleased to offer a new 2-day Creative Exchanges course designed for both activities
coordinators working in residential or day care settings, and artists interested in engaging with older people
in a care setting. Creative Exchanges will provide participants with:
• An understanding of the value of creative activity, particularly in a care setting
• Practical skills to carry out creative activities with people in residential and day care settings
• Experience of taking part in arts based workshops
The course is designed to provide meaningful opportunities to engage older people in arts activities and
adopts a person-centred approach promoted by HIQA’s National Quality Standards for Residential Care
Settings for Older People (2016).
