Carers Collective Hackney
an arts collective for people who care
Carers Collective Hackney is an arts collective for people who care. It is a place where older carers of all sizes, ethnicities, races and sexual orientations can collaborate on projects, form friendships, and celebrate and inspire one another.
The Carers Collective connects carers through meet-ups and creative activities. Carers Collective Hackney is a safe, creative space for carers at risk of mental health issues and carers for people with dementia to come together, connect and be inspired.
Carers Collective Hackney features:
Weekly creative activities, networking and courses
A staffed 'low stimulation' zone - a safe space for those with dementia or other sensory processing issues to be supported while their carers have a break and explore their creativity in another room
Volunteer 'Creative Collaborators' to bring the creative spirit of the collective's activities to the home
Two group shows of carers' work

Courses are for Hackney residents aged 50+ only.
