A practical workshop exploring the ethos and practicalities of intergenerational arts projects led by artist and theatre-maker Sue Mayo, and Magic Me Programme Director Kate Hodson.

Magic Me is an arts charity that brings the generations together to build a stronger, safer community. They team up young people aged 8+ and adults aged 60+ through shared, creative activities and events to stimulate conversation and an exchange of ideas.  

The workshop will cover:

- Why bring generations together? What intergenerational arts can unlock in older and younger people.

- The art work: examples of Magic Me’s past work and projects

- How to approach developing closer connections and creating shared experiences

- What to consider before starting an intergenerational project  

- Opportunities for networking with potential new partners interested in intergenerational work.
