Arts Derbyshire is delighted to support Dementia Action Week 2021 with the launch of the second round of our Matinée Outreach dementia friendly arts project.  

The project invites those living with dementia and their carers in Derbyshire to take part in a creative adventure over telephone and post with our fabulous team of professional artists. There’s the chance to explore some creative writing, or crafts or visual arts all from the safety and comfort of your own home, and at your own speed.

The project offers 8 regular sessions working 1:1 with one artist. Sessions are available in June/July/August 2021, and again in the Autumn.

If you know anyone who would be interested then please get in touch with the project coordinator, Frances Watt on 07449 732322 or email
