Living Arts


LivingArts is a brand-new project which aims to re-imagine care homes as arts centres. It offers older people the opportunity to continue to develop as creative individuals, working alongside musicians, dancers and visual artists to transform their environment and their relationship to it.

Our Learning & Participation team has been working alongside musician Julian West with residents at HC-One’s Aspen Court Care Home through creative activities including playing musical instruments, singing, dancing and offering words and stories, as ways of enabling them to be creative in the present moment.

The residents within the care home will share their creative work in a mini arts festival on Wednesday 6 April.
