Contemporary Art for Care Staff

We also lead arts education sessions for care staff that explore the experience of ageing through the eyes of artists. From Nick Knight's iconic Levi's campaign featuring models aged 60 - 86 to William Utermohlen's series of self portraits that were created as his diagnosis of dementia developed, we lead care staff through a radically new, vibrant and thoughtful vision of older people. 

Our package includes:

  • 1 x day training session for care staff including a gallery or studio visit 
  • Printed reference materials
