In June we start work on The Island. Taking inspiration from The Tempest – The Island is an exciting performance project exploring the nature of collaborative creative processes when professional artists and people with dementia come together to create a piece of performance.
Our Creative Director, Liz Postlethwaite, is lead artist on a major arts and older people’s project at The Courtyard in Hereford. The Courtyard was one of only 4 organisations nationally to be selected to participate in a programme developing delivery of the arts to older people in care homes throughout the country. And Liz is delighted to involved in this project funded by Arts Council England and the Baring Foundation.
