This project focused on providing support with bereavement for staff and residents, and creatively exploring what tools might help in this process.
Artist – Participate Arts
Participate Arts worked with staff to co-create ‘The Remembering Book’ which enables staff and residents to use scrap-booking techniques, crafts and needlework to encourage conversation and reflection around bereavement. Craft and conversation are natural partners and Participate Arts were able to model this way of working though a workshop with residents and staff. The plan is for this methodology to be used regularly to encourage conversation around bereavement and other difficult topics.
