Wellspring Settlement: Connecting Elders through the Arts

Improving Connections Fund: Grants awarded

Wellspring Settlement: Connecting Elders through the Arts

The grant will scale up the successful pilot of coproduced participatory arts workshops with older people. The project found that their local older people were looking for playful, creative ways to connect, and to do activities which do not conform to stereotypical expectations of ‘older people’.

My home is quiet, it is out of step with how I feel in my head
I want to experiment, it’s exciting, the possibilities are endless

Funding will enable the creation of multiple opportunities for older people to meet others and express themselves, foster social connections, know where to go for support and information and feel confident to get involved.
