Arts and care homes partnership to continue to 2019 – would your care home like to take part?

Age Cymru has received funding to continue its 'cARTrefu' partnership between artists and care homes which began in 2015.

The project will now continue to 2019 thanks to further funding from the Baring Foundation and the Arts Council Wales.  

A new team of artists is being recruited to deliver cARTrefu and they will be embarking on their first residencies from August. 

Would your care home like to take part?

Age Cymru is now looking for care homes that are willing to try something new and original; care homes who will keep an open mind about what their residents can achieve through art. 

So if you’re keen to work with a typewriter artist, would like to try large scale ceramics, or are open to exploring art inspired by dreams, we’d love to work with you! Residencies consist of one two-hour session a week for 12 weeks and are completely free.

If you’ve applied for cARTrefu before there’s no need to apply again. We’re looking for a mix of care homes new to cARTrefu and those we’ve worked with before. 

For more information, please contact Reg Noyes at Age Cymru.
