Magic Me's Projects with the Community
As well as working with schools and with care homes, Magic Me also partners housing associations, older people’s community groups, day centres and youth organisations.
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
Quality Street is building mutually beneficial, cross-generational connections in Leyton, increasing happiness and wellbeing, across three generations living in the area
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!
Creative Journeys Essex
In 2016 Susan Langford, our Director was commissioned to support the setting up and delivery of the Creative Journeys project, run by Essex County Council with Anglia Ruskin University and funded through Arts Council England.
Rooms With A View
In 2015, Rooms with a View involved more than 300 people of all ages from the East End. We explored some of the many stories that describe life in East London. Perspectives vary because of our life experiences, our ages and stages, and it is out of this cacophony that Magic Me created this project.
Young and older people came together to launch a national campaign in May 2014 to tackle age-based prejudice.
Tower Hamlets Homes, wanted to challenge negative stereotypes of young and older people, and send positive messages amongst their tenants and communities. They commissioned Magic Me to work with 5 Youth Ambassadors and 4 Older People’s Champions in 2014
