Intergenerational week - Using the arts to build intergenerarional connections
There is a reason we do intergenerational arts projects, not just intergenerational projects. As well as creative activities having proven health and wellbeing benefits for all ages, they can be used as a vehicle for connection.
Intergenerational Week - The Benefits of Continuity
Creating sustainable relationships is at the heart of our wider schools and communities work both through our Arts & Ages programme and our women’s project.
Intergenerational Week - Creating Connections
Intergenerational connection is at the heart of what we do. By creating interesting arts projects pupils and older people (some of whom are living with dementia) can work as peers to explore and make.
Intergenerational Week - The Importance of Community
One of the core aims of Quality Street was to strengthen the connection between George Mitchell Primary School and the wider community. Quality Street provided an opportunity for the school to become an intergenerational hub linking with a number of organisations working with and/or housing older people.
