Art Snacks update
ARTS OutWest's Virtual Art Snacks creative arts program is being delivered to residents who call their Multi-Purpose Service (MPS) home in six facilities in Western NSW Local Health District.
Our wonderful artists, Cath, Ro and Rob, have been leading visual arts, movement and music sessions.
Each round has seven workshops. Residents have tuned in, three mornings a week, on video conference.
Residents say they are interested in seeing people in other MPS groups.
Arts Snacks is like having arts sports teams, connected and playing together.
"There's been a subtle domino effect here," one of the activities officers reported. "The male residents have been getting up and getting active without any prompting and I feel a big part of it has to do with the few residents that I've had attend the movement workshop on the Mondays taking what they've been doing back to the other residents and talking about it."
Round two of Art Snacks starts in mid-October.
