Course overview

Butterfly Moments aims to engage Somerset residents of all ages and abilities in arts-based activities, to improve an understanding of dementia through innovative learning and help improve your sense of health and wellbeing as the county emerges from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

This project helps to improve health and wellbeing by rebuilding abilities, knowledge, mental wellbeing and support networks. As a part of the community, we will help you to increase your knowledge of dementia, in a dynamic and innovative way.

You will learn how to create and design an individually hand-crafted butterfly. This will be a part of a huge installation, representing the 9000 people (approximately) with a dementia in the county and will be part of a series of activities in July 2021.

The dementia workshops will be facilitated by Reminiscence Learning tutors and community artists who will use the creative and learning process to encourage discussion about experiences during COVID, helping build confidence and skills, and strengthen your own support network.

This project will take place online, via Zoom.
