Intergenerational work and work with older people
We first began working with older people in 2014 on a project called The Making of Me, in partnership with the Courtyard Theatre, Hereford and Shaw Healthcare. We delivered immersive drama workshops for residents in a Portishead care home, taking the ‘Imagination Train’ to different locations each week chosen by the participants including the Ritz, the Beach and the Zoo.
Since opening Creative Workspace in 2017 we have run a range of intergenerational events and workshops for older people including live music performances, visual art workshops and film screenings in partnership with the Linkage Network and Bristol Ageing Better.
