We provide regular arts sessions in reminiscence, drama, movement, music/singing, creative writing and arts and crafts, which can be shared with family and friends.
In residential homes and day centres for people living with dementia in London, Hertfordshire and Essex
Sessions are bespoke but will usually be for 45 – 75 minutes. Running weekly over a period from 3 – 24 months.
The sessions are run by experienced arts facilitators and cover a variety of different art forms, depending on the interests of the group.
All projects for the groups aim to receive grant funding. Members can give voluntary donations to help cover some basic costs but do not pay for JaZanne Arts artists.
JaZanne Arts supports the groups to apply for funding or does so on their behalf.
JaZanne Arts directors will ensure the smooth running of the projects. At least one of the directors plus other experienced arts facilitators will deliver the sessions along with trained older volunteers.
"The way you used the objects and linked them to the songs was so simple yet got them so involved and telling stories we hadn’t heard before, I am definitely going to use that method from now on."
"I learnt a lot from them, we succeeded in drawing them out more – I think they enjoyed the songs the most, – if they didn’t want to talk in the beginning they did in the end.."
"Thank-you so much for all the wonderful activities, singing, dancing and sharing memories."
"I didn’t realise how much you could say without words."
"Rosemary takes me back home. My mother used it all the time."
