Creating Conversations is the social enterprise of the participatory arts charity Artlink Central. We develop evidence based products to help with communication and wellbeing in communities.
Creating Conversations supports the charitable work of Artlink Central. Any profits made are reinvested back into communities and used to continue to help and support people experiencing physical or mental illness, disability or disadvantage.
About the charity Artlink Central
For over 30 years, Artlink Central has been supporting people in the local community by providing access to social creative opportunities.
We work with a range of people and place based services in hospitals, community centres, schools, care facilities and social prescription services.
At the heart of our work is a commitment to building opportunities which aim to reduce social isolation, and enhance confidence and wellbeing.
The 'creation' of Creating Conversations
Creating Conversations was developed following the extensive work of Artlink Central in communities and finding there was a lack of meaningful person centred conversational based material available.
Creating Conversations was designed by a team of artists and dementia specialists with extensive experience in delivering activities with older people and incorporates considerable input from older people with a diagnosis of dementia, their carers and support staff.
