Every month Magic Me participants, volunteers and staff meet to go on an outing. This is a way of keeping in touch in between projects and allows a space for participants to get to know each other.

About the Project
The Go and See group meet on the first Tuesday of every month at Rich Mix for coffee and films. They are often joined by Care Home residents from Silk Court and use these get-togethers to plan outings in and around London.
Since the group started meeting in September 2010, they have visited the Olympic Park, Kew Gardens, Dennis Severs House in Spitalfields, The Royal Observatory, The Space on the Isle of Dogs, gone to an Arsenal football match at the Emirates and have taken a guided tour of the City of London led by a Magic Me participant.
Furry Tales Exhibition
Most recently the group visited Stepney City Farm and took pictures of the animals and surroundings. They curated an exhibition of their photos and a soundscape which was displayed at the farm in June 2013. Take a look at our album of the private view on our Facebook page.
If you would like to join the outings and/or the Film Club at Rich Mix get in touch with Clea.
