Artsoculus

Artsoculus

Kathleen Downie is an educator, artist and arts-in-health practitioner who co-founded the Creative Arts Program (CAP), Division of Endocrinology, at the Hospital for Sick Children in 1995. This innovative arts-in-health program uses a model of collaborative inquiry, engaging professional artists and children alike in creative work that is dynamic and expressive, transforming the experience of patients, families and clinicians within the medical space. Arising from this extensive work Kathleen has developed a learning framework for adults with dementia that is similarly based in shared inquiry. The Reciprocal Teacher- Learner Model (Downie and Polo) uses reciprocity and shared mutual experience to facilitate rich learning processes. In this way the roles of teacher and learner become fluid and interchangeable, permitting a dynamic dialogue that recognizes and elevates the expertise and ability of the learner with dementia. Over the past 5 years Kathleen has facilitated painting workshops for the Alzheimer’s Society of Toronto (at Head Office, Providence Health, and The Bitove Wellness Academy); the creation of the Living Garden Quilt at Baycrest Hospital; workshops for residents and recreational staff at SageCare; and painting workshops at Senior People’s Resources in North Toronto (SPRINT). In addition to this work Kathleen is working to develop more inclusive learning opportunities and spaces for people with dementia in the mainstream.
