Artist Interventions

During the Leadership Development Programme, Care Managers are offered the opportunity to commission a creative activity (an intervention) in their home by one of the TCAN Artists.  Care Managers are supported during their Away Days and one-to-one meetings to think about aspects of their home which could be supported by working with an Artist.  They are encouraged to create their own Artist brief, thinking about how working with an Artist might help them to move forward with their objectives.  So they are not thinking about the brief in terms of providing activity or entertainment, but rather in terms of, for example, supporting communication amongst staff, enhancing consultation and ownership among residents, or supporting physical strengthening and confidence of particular residents.  You can view brief summaries of how the Care Homes responded to this way of working in the links below.
