for family and professional carers of those with dementia, bringing poetry to the process of ageing


Designed to explore and express many possible responses to ageing, both in ourselves and those we love and care for, John Killick, poet and founder of Dementia Positive, will direct a two-hour workshop building poetry out of our experience of caring for those with dementia. Using the artworks in GV Art's concurrent exhibition Coming of Age: the art and science of ageing as a creative stimulus, John will introduce and mentor the writing process one-to-one. The group will then share the work and selected pieces will be published on GV Art's website .Killick is also Poet in Residence for Older People, the Courtyard Theatre, Hereford, and Writer in Residence for Alzheimer Scotland.
