New project: 2020
Sponsored by Museum London, Age Friendly London Network and London Area Creative Age Network volunteers ~ we are so excited to announce a new pilot project. This is a series of creative arts programs and activities co-designed by social housing seniors’ residents. The project is called Supporting Healthier Aging Through the Arts. The participatory activities and workshops are meant to empower and inspire older adults 50plus to become more creative, active and engaged with the community.
Similar and successful programs have been organized through the London Public Library Branches (see photo).
Senior residents will experience theatre, photography, community drumming, music, visual and media arts. Community organizations will be invited to collaborate to strengthen the program and develop a plan for long term sustainability.
The initial workshops will start in February 2020.
