Free Movement, Music and Memories sessions in Kenilworth for older people with memory issues and their loved ones and wellbeing young people’s arts activities
Get your creative juices flowing…..…..Arts Uplift are bringing a brand new intergenerational FREE arts project to Kenilworth starting in July thanks to funding from Comic Relief, Warwick District Council and Kenilworth Town Council.
First to get going is the older people’s Movement to Music sessions which involves simple stretching exercises to catchy well known songs and music, gently guided by experienced dancer Kath Kimber-McTiffen, with plenty of time for tea and chat. Participants do not need a diagnosis to take part, and those with limited mobility can remain seated if they prefer. Suitable for all abilities and no experience required!
“Kath is brilliant. She chose a great range of songs and made us feel so welcome. Before we knew it we were all joining in. It was great fun.”
Dates and times: Fridays from 11.00am – 12.30pm
Place: Kenilworth Library, 11 Smalley Place, Kenilworth CV8 1QG
As well as being a lot of fun, participation in the arts can support mental well-being, improve brain function and physical coordination, as well as being a great way to make friends. Come and join us!
Young People’s group
We are working with refugee families from Kenilworth on a visual arts and crafts project with Sioda from Earthbound at the Kenilworth Centre.
The older and young people will meet and exchange stories about their lives and those stories will be turned into wonderful artworks to be performed and showcased later in the year.
