Lost in Art, RhylVisual Arts Project for People Living with Dementia


Picture 39

Rhyl’s Lost in Art group have been meeting regularly over the past couple of years and are now looking to welcome new members.

Lost in art is a project aimed at people living in the community with dementia. Would you like the opportunity to join arts and craft sessions each week? We work with a variety of materials (all supplied, no need to bring your own), producing our own artwork.

No previous art experience is necessary – this is a chance to engage with art, make friends, socialize and share experiences whilst trying out something new together. The sessions are led by professional artists who are also Dementia Friends.

The aim of the project is to explore the role of the visual arts in addressing issues which can affect people with dementia, including social isolation, confidence, communication and quality of life and wellbeing.

Tea and biscuits will be served at all the workshops and there will be familiar and friendly faces present.

Carers are also welcome to attend if they wish.

Time: 1pm until 3pm

Cost: £2.50 per person, per session
