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.
Our Work With Schools
Magic Me connects schools with older people in their community through the arts. We work with Primary and Secondary Schools across Tower Hamlets, connecting students with local older people for mutual benefit.
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.
Outside In brought together children from Clara Grant Primary School with older people in the local community, at the Linc Centre.
Passing Notes brought together children from Osmani Primary School with residents from John Sinclair Court, managed by One Housing.
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.
Decorum is a series of projects by intergenerational arts charity Magic Me. The projects seek to explore what ‘good behaviour’ means for women in the 21st Century. In 2018 we have had 3 projects looking at this topic, in London, Southend and Peterborough. Each group, made up of school age girls and older women from the community, made a film (or films) as part of their work. We are now inviting you to get involved..
