DARE TO IMAGINE: a care home’s guide to creativity

Between 2019 – 2023, Magic Me delivered Artists’ Residencies in Care Homes, a project bringing together professional Arts Companies and Excelcare care homes in Essex to raise expectations of what the arts can be and do in Care Settings.

“It’s not just about ‘doing an activity’ – any moment can be creative.”

DARE TO IMAGINE: a care home’s guide to creativity

This resource has been created to help you bring the magic of ‘Artists’ Residencies in Care Homes’ to your care home. It has been written with input from Care Team members to ensure it takes into account the unique needs of care homes.

This resource is for the whole care home community, including family and friends.

We understand that not every home will have a long-term partnership with an arts company although we hope in the future this will change! With this in mind, we thought about how care homes can build creativity into their everyday.
