Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity's transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

FEAST, making great art happen across Cornwall

Passing the Parcel


Passing the Parcel is an intergenerational, multi-disciplinary arts project between older people living with dementia and their carers and young children, pupils and students in Cornwall. The project consists of 40 creative literacy/performing arts workshops offering innovative techniques such as edible poetry, instant song writing, book-making in all shapes and sizes, along with the creation of poetic objects d’art. It will result in the creation of a huge Pass the Parcel that can be played by the whole community. 
The project aims to unfold the layers that divide generations in the community, gradually revealing & nurturing the heart of one shared community.

Passing the Parcel will result in the creation of a world-leading, creative training package for care homes, schools & memory cafes to roll out in their communities. This will be launched at a groundbreaking, inter-disciplinary creative conference at Falmouth University where partners from all over the world will be invited to learn about & share in the magic of intergenerational practice for people living with dementia.
