Composer Justin Grounds hosts a once-off coffee morning for carers at Sharon’s View@ The Uillinn Café.
The session will be an informal and relaxed opportunity to connect with other carers in the community and explore ways to bring music and creativity into our daily lives with those we care for. We will discuss and share some of our favourite music, find out how to make playlists and share them, and explore rhythms and melodies.
Free event but limited space so Advance Booking essential – email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Creative Carers Programme was launched in 2022 to provide enjoyable, social and creative engagement opportunities for family carers – people who provide care for a loved one in the home. Managed by Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre as part of Arts for Health Partnership, the programme is currently delivered by composer and musician Justin Grounds and visual artist Sarah Ruttle. In its first year, the aim was to better understand the experience of carers in the community and to design a programme of activities that caters to the creative and cultural interests and needs of its participants.
Resonate in association with Uillinn, promoting creativity and wellbeing in our community.
