Equal Arts are a leading creative ageing charity supporting older people and those living with dementia in Gateshead, Newcastle and across the UK.  

Creative Friends meet every Wednesday at the Shipley from 10am until 12pm. The inclusive sessions are dementia-friendly and informal. New members welcome.

The sessions are a great opportunity to get together, explore new art techniques, and have a catch up over a cup of tea. 

January sessions will be led by artist Emma Sheridan.
