ABOUT SYDCAE

The first creative arts exhibition took place in 2009 and was organised by David Reid with help from The School of Nursing & Midwifery at The University of Sheffield.

David has undertaken dementia care practice research and published various articles on this and on relationship-centred approaches to dementia care. David is committed to exploring what dementia means to those people directly affected, including people with dementia, their families and health and social care practitioners.

David also leads a cross-faculty team delivering the MA Dementia Studies and teaches on the Theorising dementia in the UK Policy Context module. He has a particular interest in the co-production of dementia education with people with dementia and their supporters.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO VISIT THE EXHIBITION VENUES

The exhibitions assistant coordinator, Natasha Wilson, first got involved in 2013. She is a third year Health and Human Sciences undergraduate at the University of Sheffield. Natasha feels strongly about the quality of life older people, including those with Dementia, experience in residential care settings.

Furthermore, she is interested in how creativity can help those with Dementia express themselves to those around them. The main aim of the exhibition is to offer members of South Yorkshire’s dementia community an opportunity to showcase their talents and share their experiences of life with dementia.
Both David and Natasha want the event to be positive, enjoyable and a chance for the wider community to develop an understanding of Dementia.

YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY!

There has been increasing use of the arts in healthcare over the last 20 years. This has resulted in a number of health benefits for patients – including reduction in blood pressure, heart rate, length of hospital stay and perception of pain.

For patients with mental health problems benefits have included improved communication skills, self esteem and behavioural change. We also aim to provide art work which challenge the stigma of dementia and showcase the creative abilities of those with this condition.

Art can make a difference for people with dementia – like a call to the brain, a connection, helping people come alive again. The exhibition is a celebration of talent that often goes unused in the community and a authentic dementia friendly event.

DAiSY

Dementia Arts in South Yorkshire is a new community group set up by David Reid, Natasha Wilson and Albert Attom in late 2015. The DAiSY group is registered with the South Yorkshire Community Foundation.
Between them, David, Natasha and Albert have organised the annual South Yorkshire Dementia Creative Arts exhibition for the past 7 years (www.sydcae.co.uk). We decided to form a new community group, with a committee, a Constitution and subscription membership. We wanted to create a more effective way of coordinating and funding the annual arts exhibition going forwards, supporting other dementia-related community initiatives, and ensuring that all of this is connected closely with people living in South Yorkshire.
Whilst not a registered charity, the DAiSY group is run along similar lines. The group's activities are bound by its written Constitution. All members stand for the Committee and have an equal vote at the Annual General Meeting. In the Constitution, it states that the main aim of DAiSY is:
"To advance dementia awareness (education) for public benefit in particular but not exclusively through the provision of an annual creative arts exhibition for anyone living with or affected by dementia in South Yorkshire"
In relation to DAiSY's finances, the Constitution states:
"All monies received by or on behalf of the Group shall be applied to further the aim of the Group and for no other purpose"
Become a member of DAiSY
This is an exciting development and we would like you to become involved. We are now looking for people to join the group as members. The membership fee is £5.00 for 12 months. Your membership fee is guaranteed to contribute towards supporting the annual exhibition. This year, the exhibition is taking place across four sites in Barnsley in May 7-13.
By becoming a member you will not only be supporting this established event but you will also have the opportunity to get involved in deciding what we do in 2017 and beyond. You may also want to undertake some fundraising for the group - if not, don't worry, we are seeking funds from a range of sources. You may want to come to our annual social event or suggest other initiatives that DAiSY might become involved in.
We need your support but we also need your ideas. - interesting in get involded and supporting DAiSY - coming soon -
