Call for Artists, Creative Practitioners, Makers and Facilitators
Unforgettable Experiences is seeking practitioners in a range of media and disciplines within the creative, cultural, and heritage fields, with the experience, skills, and confidence to deliver online, interactive workshop sessions for adults living with dementia and neurological conditions, their loved ones and carers. From cookery to comedy, drawing to dance, singing to sign-writing, we are looking for as wide and diverse a range of disciplines as possible to engage with and offer choice to those individuals who will take part.
Purpose of the Role
Practitioners will be asked to deliver weekly online sessions of one-hour duration, working with the same group of participants over a period of 12 weeks. Groups will be small and the content and delivery of the sessions should be tailored to support the needs and preferences of individuals, contributing to the health, well-being, and social outcomes that Unforgettable Experiences seeks to deliver:
• stimulating cognition – through learning and doing
• improving well-being – through active engagement and the building of relationships
• encouraging self hood – through personal choice and individual attention
We are looking for practitioners with experience and confidence, good communicators who can remain calm in challenging circumstances. You will be required to have experience not only of teaching and sharing your practice with adults, but also of the effective use of online platforms and tools to do this.
