Doorstep Discoveries

Doorstep Discoveries

Open Art Box CIC, in partnership with Stevenage Museum and North Herts Museum are delivering ARTefact activity boxes to the doorsteps of people living with dementia and their carers in the Stevenage and North Herts Districts.

Each week participants will have the opportunity to discover a new artefact from their local museum and take part in an art activity in response.

ARTefact boxes will be delivered weekly to participants’ doors and will contain a photograph and information about an artefact from the museum’s collection. Alongside this object there will be instructions and art materials supplied for an activity, specially design by Open Art Box artists, that encourage participants to reflect and respond to these items. 

Each participant, along with their ARTefact box, will have the telephone support of an artist to guide and discuss each activity.

To register to receive our weekly art boxes please contact Christina at or telephone 07872333437.

'Doorstep Discoveries' is an Arts Council England funded project.
