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.

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.
