    NetPark Wellbeing: Dementia Groups

    July 4 @ 10:00 am - September 27 @ 12:00 pm

    Free

    We now have our July – September 2022 courses lined up. If you would like to let us know which one you would like to attend, we will get you booked in. You can attend in person or online. If a group is full, we can put you on the waiting list for October 2022.

    We have limited numbers of iPads we can also lend out to those who do not have the technology to access Zoom. We now can have spaces for up to 8 participants to come into the art room at Chalkwell Park and 4 spaces to join us via Zoom. Have a look at our Instagram for examples of work from some of the following groups www.instagram.com/netparkwellbeing/. We also do partnership work with Metal’s residency artists.

    Above is a picture of #EssexWritersHouse residency artist Norman Erikson Pasaribu who taught the NetPark Wellbeing journal group how to do journal inspired poetry.
