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..
Decorum Part One
Who decides what good behaviour is? What are the rules for twenty-first century women? Our project with Mulberry School for Girls and older women from the local community asked these questions in 2016/17
I Live In It
Artist Sue Mayo worked with Magic Me to bring together a group of older women and students from Mulberry School for Girls, in 2016, to share stories about their bodies, their moves and celebrate all the things that these bodies can and can’t do.
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.
