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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
