We are a social enterprise using creativity and creative engagement to fuel learning, change and development. We do this by developing projects that create space for thinking and togetherness in a wide range of settings.
We specialise in developing creative projects with, by and for older people, with particular expertise in engaging people living with dementia through our flagship project – The Storybox Project.
Recent highlights include:
- A football inspired creative dementia workshop and training programme for the National Football Museum running alongside their Spirit of 66 exhibition. You can watch a film about the project here.
- A Treasury of Participatory Arts and Older People created for The Baring Foundation. You can download a copy here.
- A Jeremy Deller inspired installation created in a sheltered housing scheme as part of Manchester International Festival.
- An ongoing creative dementia cafe at Bury Art Museum. You can watch a film about this popular group here.
