Encounters believe passionately in the transformative power of the arts to improve health and well being and we bring the value of creative processes to a wide variety of participants. An ethos of listening, involving and responding are embedded in all our projects. Building on the success of Ageing Well creative consultation for TCDT we worked strategically with Torbay Culture board to deliver an arts and culture on referral scoping report that led to a large scale programme of Arts and Health activity in Torbay and South Devon including Dance for Falls Prevention, Singing for COPD, Arts for Young peoples and older peoples Mental health and wellbeing, currently being delivered. We are the co-cordinators of the new Torbay Arts and Culture Network with a focus on developing cultural commissioning opportunities for the sector.
In 2017 we will be delivering creative consultation with a wider range of Care Homes towards the creation of a Residents Rights Charter.
