Magic Moments 2021
Following Magic Me’s success designing and delivering bespoke projects for Care Homes, Extra Care Schemes and other older people’s venues in 2020 - 21, we have received funding from Essex County Council to build upon our work with care professionals.
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.
Inside Out 2021
Our new Inside Out project for 2021 sees care professionals in three care homes in East London working in creative collaboration with Magic Me artists.
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
Inside Out Festival 2019
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!
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.
Reflections of Stepney
This intergenerational group have explored the theme of ‘reflection’, notions of identity and how identity is formed. The group have written their own version of the Narcissus story, from Greek Mythology, using music, storytelling and drawing.
