HeArt of Care is a series of creative masterclasses presented by artists from around the globe to help inspire carers. With the aim to help raise awareness of carers both in our country and internationally.

The project was developed by Rosetta Life.

Each masterclass has been created to encourage carers to take part and produce their own unique response which they can submit to be part of an online gallery. One of these masterclasses was produced with Helix Arts working in collaboration with artist Jessica Kinnersley to micro-teach creative journaling. There are a further two masterclasses available on the HeArt of Care website.

Want to have a go?

The following film introduces the concept of creative journaling, it prompts you to create a care Cairn. This might be as guided in the film, or your own ‘take’ on it. You may dip in and out of each page or journal experience as suits you.

We want your work to represent you, how you care, and also how people perceive care and the role of carers across society. This can be literal, abstract, traditional or alternative.
