Third Age Creatives

Moving Memory dance theatre company performing outside No.34, Sittingbourne.

We want to make it easier for older people locally to find creative things to do that they’ll enjoy – ­maybe learn new skills, volunteer, make friends and be able to take part in activity that’s easy for them to get involved with.

 

Our Third Age Creatives strand acknowledges that more than 20% of the population in Swale & Medway is over 60 years old, whilst there is increasing evidence indicating that taking part in cultural and creative activity has positive health and wellbeing benefits for older people.

We’ve funded some great projects for older people in care homes and almshouses; in partnership with Age UK; and we’ve supported people to create their own projects – learning contemporary dance, and setting up a new amateur theatre group in a village.
