The ART of Age

Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) we are running our weekly groups but with restricted numbers, however we will continue to support our Smart community through regular phone calls, social media and sending them lovely creative activities.

If you, or you know someone who would benefit from our alternative Smart social engagement at this difficult time, please do contact us.  You can also download our smART Wellbeing Guide to Isolation.

We run a free community group for the elderly, including those living with a dementia, with the aim to help reduce loneliness and social isolation.

The group meets every Tuesday from 10am to midday in the gallery.

Each session is different, one week we may be painting and the next reading poetry with local primary school children. The focus of this group is to encourage community cohesion, so people feel part of it and not socially isolated. It also gives valuable respite to carers, who can take the opportunity to use our quiet room to relax and have a cup of tea or go for a stroll along the seafront.

No booking is required, just come along and enjoy a cuppa!

DATES – Every TUESDAY 10am to midday in my GALLERY.
