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.
Each project is designed by our artists to provide a space for people from all ages, backgrounds, faiths and ethnicities to meet, get to know each other and see the world from each other’s viewpoint.
Our current project Quality Street brings together three generations of residents in Leyton to create new connections through art projects, celebrations and street festivals. Funded by housing association, L&Q, Quality Street will build mutually beneficial, cross-generational connections, 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.
Projects range in size and format from the small group of older and younger men who took part inDigital Intimacy to large cross-community initiatives such as our 2015 performance project, Rooms with a View.
Magic Me is always looking for new ways to strengthen our core work in the borough of Tower Hamlets, and reach audiences beyond. If you are a community organisation or group in Tower Hamlets or are interested in finding out more, please do get in touch.
