Resources for Artists
The ArtWorks Cymru Quality Principles are grouped into three areas – intention, activity and people. We have designed a set of tools to help you think about quality within the projects or programmes that you are delivering.
This handbook is not a tool-kit of prescription exercises to deliver visual arts projects, and it’s not an evaluation guide. What it is, is a result of a research project and is intended to be used by artists and other people who plan to deliver arts-based activities with people who are living with dementia. It is a set of useful ideas and recommendations that come from a robust research project setting out some foundations for developing visual arts projects with and for, people affected by dementia.
We hope that it will be of great value to artists and creative practitioners at all stages of their careers, as well as to teachers and other people collaborating with them, training providers or policy makers, and consequently children whose creative skills development is at the heart of the work.
