Creative Mojo offers inspiring and accessible activities for people in residential care, specialist dementia care services, learning disability homes & the wider community. They have received an Annual Fund grant to support their ‘Creative Connections Poetry Group’.
Speaking about their grant, Creative Mojo said:
“We are thrilled to receive a grant from Literature Works to enable us to pilot a new dementia friendly community poetry group in partnership with Waterlooville Library and Dementia Friendly Hampshire. This funding will enable us to run groups aimed to encourage creativity through shared reading and writing of poetry and will be aimed at people with dementia and a family member or carer living in the community. We are excited to be able to support group members to connect to the creativity and power of nature by bringing a little of the outdoors inside through poetry, rekindling a connection with the wonder and beauty of nature. Together we will explore well known poems, tactile objects like fir cones, beach stones, leaves, flowers etc. and inspirational images to encourage engagement and inspire our own poetry.”
