Quality Street will build mutually beneficial, cross-generational connections in Leyton, increasing happiness and wellbeing, across three generations living in the area. Each year, a new annual street festival will be co-designed with the school and other partners, to celebrate and showcase all ages in the community.
Inside Out Festival
Inside Out Festival took place in November 2019 in Leyton and Leytonstone. A new intergenerational arts event that connected young adult locals with care home neighbours through creative making, conversation and community spirit!
Artists' Residencies in Care Homes Essex
Four cutting edge arts organisations: Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, Fevered Sleep, Gecko and curious directive, are paired with four care homes in Essex run by Excelcare UK. The project is funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
Arts & Ages
Arts & Ages is an ambitious three year intergenerational arts programme nurturing partnerships between 8 primary schools and 8 groups of older people in Tower Hamlets
Cocktails in Care Homes
Evenings in care homes can be quiet and lonely, so every week Magic Me volunteers host cocktail parties - an occasion for volunteers and residents to socialise together. Your support will help us run more parties in more homes.
Magic Me's Women's Projects
Since 2004 Magic Me has run projects that focus on women's experience and history, including a ten year collaboration at the Women's Library.
