Description

Led by older women, Moving Memory brings older people together,moving and making, creating movement pieces that animate their stories and experiences of the everyday, celebrating and valuing participants for the dynamic vibrant human beings they are. We put the older body and voice 'centre stage', reaching marginalised and isolated communities by running 'Moving Well' sessions in public spaces such as libraries and shopping centre. We know that our creative approach hits all 5 ways to well being, beyond which participants talk about feeling empowered with new skills that equip them to make and whenever possible, to perform, affording a new sense of purpose and belonging to a distinctive community.
