For 30+ years Magic Me’s exciting, pioneering intergenerational arts projects have been giving young and older people opportunities to meet, create and spend time together, combatting ageism and loneliness. Week by week young people and older adults meet in schools, care homes, older peoples centres and after-school clubs, working on a shared arts activity e.g. drama, music and photography.
In the last year, our projects and activities have faced huge changes brought by Covid-19. Wanting to keep the connections between younger and older people going, we launched our At Home Together programme to find new ways to meet, to make and to party, at distance.
“It’s not just about you staying in touch, but the quality of when you keep in touch.” – Older Person
