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.
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.
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
The View From Here - Third Instalment
Our Third instalment of The View From Here is designed by artists Amanda Mascarenhas and Chuck Blue Lowry. The third instalment took a moment to celebrate our achievements, reflect on our time at home and think about our hopes for the future.
Meet the Street - Quality Street Year 1
Meet the Street was a glorious coming together of all the projects from year one.
Wonderful Wednesdays - Quality Street Year 1
Every Wednesday a group of seventeen Year 3 students from George Mitchell Primary School have met with adults from Glebelands, a sheltered housing group in Leyton to explore ways in which different generations can come together to make, imagine and celebrate.
Generations United - Quality Street Year 1
Generations United brought together Year 5 boys and adults from Leyton Orient Walking Football Club for 6 weeks through April and May this year with sessions taking place at “The Hub” community space, Leyton Orient FC. Led by artists Ben and Surya the group explored themes of Games, Play and Football. This collaboration was an exciting new venture, bringing creative arts and sports together.
Our Celebration - Quality Street Year 1
Our Celebration is part of the Quality Street project. From March to June, an intergenerational group aged from 7-100 met at Albany Court sheltered housing scheme each week. Working with artists Chuck, Mia and Kathy the group explored the theme of celebration through photography, costume, framing, storytelling and making. Over the weeks they shared personal stories of celebrations, experimented with different creative processes and had a lot of fun!
