We appreciate that many people are unable to access digital technology, or are finding it overwhelming to do so; here are some ideas and resources for connecting with offline:
- A collection of on and offline resources and ideas from Fun Palaces’ Tiny Revolutions of Connection
- Quentin Blake has produced downloadable images to print off and colour in https://www.quentinblake.com/fun-free/colouring
- Sheffield’s back-garden gigs movement
- The Chalk Your Walk movement
- House of Memories, for people living with dementia, has information on how to create a memory box or a memory tree
- A Care to Create toolkit for care homes from Intergenerational Music Making. Here is a link to the project’s facebook page with example creations
- Art Activity Boxes are available from Creative Minds
- Imperial Health Charity has produced an activity book, see attached, resource which can be printed and used.
- Great Ormond Street Hospital Arts Team have made downloadable colouring in sheets by the artist and printmaker Anita Klein available if you follow this link https://www.gosh.nhs.uk/wards-and-departments/departments/gosh-arts/resources/colouring-sheets-anita-klein
Lastly Art for Life has kindly been sent the attached Creative Comforts information which has been put together by the Arts & Heritage team at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Whilst 1 page is targeted at UCLH staff there are lots of other great ideas to look at.
