SoundUp CreativeCast

SoundUp Arts in partnership with Together Dementia Support has started releasing interactive music sessions online for people living with dementia anywhere across the UK.

SoundUp CreativeCasts
Enjoy interactive music anytime, anywhere with anyone!

Our CreativeCast Programme brings interactive musical sessions and creative activities to people living with dementia digitally. These are easy and flexible resources that will allow anyone to set up an interactive music and creative session for those they care for.

SoundUp CreativeCast allow us to offer our interactive music sessions and creative activities through an online platform. Each week you receive an interactive music session and a pack of creative activities which aim to engage and inspire people living with dementia and the elderly in care. By digitalising our sessions, we are able to offer a creative resource that enables carers and care homes to offer high-quality musical and creative engagement to those they care for on a regular basis. This is a varied and flexible tool for care-staff and carers who wish to engage individuals or groups of people living with dementia in musical and creative activity through a sustainable and cost-effective digital platform.

About the CreativeCast Package
The SoundUp CreativeCasts are a weekly series of interactive videos and accompanying creative resources designed to engage people living with dementia.

Each weekly CreativeCast is a themed, music-based interactive video of 20-30 minutes. These weekly participatory musical videos are accompanied by a CreativePack; a collection of 6-8 printable creative resources that enable further engagement and activity. Hosted by Lucy, a singer and dementia-music specialist, each video will be based around a different weekly theme and include a range of musical and singing activities to engage people living with dementia.

Each week, the interactive music activities might include a welcome song, a creative warm-up, a high-quality guest musical performance, and a range of interactive musical and singing activities facilitated by Lucy. Each weekly video will be accompanied by a themed CreativePack. In each weekly pack there will be 6-8 tailor-made activity resources, that can be facilitated with individuals or groups of people living with dementia. These activity resources will include a range of varied activities such as sing-a-longs, creative art activities, quizzes, puzzles, themed playlists, poetry-writing templates, pictures and discussion activities.

The SoundUp CreativeCast programme is designed so that the CreativeCast video can be re-watched several times across the week and could be paired with one or more of the CreativePack activity resources. In this way, a carer/facilitator can use the CreativeCast resources in multiple creative sessions across one week. The application and use of the CreativeCast package is flexible; it can be used in 1-2-1 sessions or with groups of various sizes. The package can be utilized to run various different sessions across each week and has accounted for the range of abilities that people with dementia may experience. The

CreativeCast package would provide a minimum of 4+ hours of creative activity each week for an individual, with opportunity to expand these resources to run unlimited hours of creative activities. Importantly, the programme is designed for carers and facilitators to tailor the use of the package to suit those they care for.

A month's subscription costs 30GBP for individuals per week, and 70GBP for care homes per week, this price is discounted for subscriptions of a month or more.
