Animation Collaboration

Visual Art with Andrea Freeman
With Andrea the group will create images inspired by the theme of sky; planes, balloons, clouds, birds, rainbows, and anything else up there... These images will then be animated to tell a tale of the sky in different moods.

Animation with Rob Crisp
Experienced animator Rob will guide the group through basic stop motion techniques using iPads, and create new ways of engaging with each other in an accessible activity. By the end of these sessions we’ll have created a fun and colourful short film that everyone has contributed towards.
Absolutely no previous experience is needed, honest.


Breathing  Space offers people with dementia and their family member, partner, carer or support worker a range of creative activities.  It’s proven that taking part in creative activities has positive benefits to mental and physical health and well being.  Participants can take part in weekly group sessions where they can meet people, make friends and have fun.  Sessions include music and song, movement, dance and visual arts.  It’s a place to revisit forgotten stories, songs, creative skills and movement and explore new and exciting ones.  Absolutely no previous experience is needed.
