Generate is an inclusive arts workshop for people with dementia.
Generate emerged from a research project with the University of Portsmouth, which aimed to explore how visual arts workshops could benefit the lives of people with dementia.
The sessions provide a comfortable environment for participants to learn new arts and crafts skills, supported by artists Roy Eneas and Abi Wheeler.
Since it's creation in 2015, the group have produced four exhibitions at Aspex. Original member Barbara Bessant also became our artist-in-residence, producing on-site paintings throughout August 2016.
Whilst creating artwork using a variety of mediums, participants will also be given tea, coffee and cake. Refreshments are also available for carers to purchase from our cafe partners Lily & Lime LD.
The workshops run every Friday, from 10:30am to 12.30pm and are completely free.
