Celebrating Older People's week

Posted on 17 September 2012

The Belgrade Theatre is holding a free event, in celebration of Older People’s Week, that will inform people about the Belgrade’s innovative Arts and Health project – Creative Gymnasium.

On Mon 1 Oct you are invited to participate in the exploration of how the arts can be used in conjunction with working with older people. The day will include practical workshop delivery skills, arts informed research methods and discussion on partnership working. Attendees will also have the opportunity to see a workshop version of Shine On, a play co-created by a fifteen strong cast of performers aged 50+.

Shine On presents the everyday stories from Coventry’s older generations and celebrates the memories, rituals, hopes and heritage of the elders in our city, whilst showcasing their artistry.
