Active Arts provides initiatives for an active aged community engaged by performing arts. Nina and Fiona have been delivering sessions in aged care homes focused on poetry sharing and performing and with the support of the Albert-Eden Grants board were able to extend this offer to an aged home care and its residential in the Albert-Eden area for the first half of 2017.
The interactive sessions they ran were very well received, both by staff and attendees. Each month they created a theme for the poetry that they shared and performed, encouraging discussion, participation and involvement.
Here are some of the comments from recent attendees: “Wonderful. This has been really wonderful for me. We don’t have anything else like it” “Please continue and keep coming. We want more. More poetry, more."
