On Thursday May 11th 5pm at Hebden Bridge Library verd de gris arts will celebrate the launch of their new poetry book ‘Dreaming of the Daylight Days’. We would like to invite you to join us at this very special event to celebrate with us. There will be poetry readings and some singing! We hope you can come!
Created and produced by course leader Kaye Martindale and volunteer Kay Boardman ‘Dreaming of the Daylight Days’ is a collection of poetry and painting by members of our weekly creative dementia sessions and is the perfect embodiment of the group’s creative spirit.
“The challenge of dementia can, at times, be particularly tough; and sometimes it takes the support of others to see the sunshine through the clouds. As a poet, I know how hard it is to reflect this journey in words. Dreaming of the Daylight Days speaks from the inside of that journey – and is all the more ambitious and powerful for it.” Clare Shaw, Poet
