Sparks! Art for Wellness Toolkit (2018)

The Sparks! Art for Wellness Toolkit features art activities from the Community Care sector’s inaugural Arts Residency which was held under the auspices of the AIC Wellness Programme. It showcases a range of art techniques and art activities designed by ten artists who were paired with nine nursing homes across Singapore for the Arts Residency. The Arts Residency pilot was a joint initiative by the Agency for Integrated Care and the National Arts Council.

These toolkit activities are resources made publicly available for the Community Care Sector and volunteers. Developed by artists, this toolkit provides step-by-step instructions and facilitation tips so that anyone, regardless of their previous art experiences, can lead sessions confidently.
