Caregiving and the Arts: A Free Silver Kite Workshop

  • Edmonds Center for the Arts (map)

Caregiving is a difficult job. Led by Silver Kite Community Arts, this interactive workshop is designed to support family and professional caregivers - exploring both how to use the arts as a tool for respite from caregiving, and how to incorporate arts engagement into caregiving practice. With the goal to remove barriers to caregiver participation, this training opportunity also invites those who are being cared for to attend, with a special focus on engaging those with memory loss. The day will be divided between group activities and break-out sessions, during which Silver Kite teaching artists lead participants in tailored arts activities.

As part of ECA’s Dementia-Inclusive Series, this program is designed for family and professional caregivers, and those they care for. Admission is free-of-charge, and lunch is provided! For more information, contact Gillian Jones, Director of Programming, at gillian@ec4arts.org or 425.275.9483.

Generously funded by the Hazel Miller Foundation and ArtsWA.
