You Me Us Lite

On the left in a circle, a black woman is concentrating on writing in a notebook. Next is the You Me Us project logo which is a blue circle with hands of different skintones around it. In the centre of the circle are the words You Me Us. To the right in a circle frame is a older white man with grey beard. He is talking to someone on a mobile phone. He is smiling as he is talking.

Want to get involved with our You Me Us project but you’re too busy? 

Good news – you can!

Some of our You Me Us groups offer a mini version of the project, You Me Us Lite, that needs less time commitment so you can take part.

Find out how below or contact us at kasia@ideastest.co.uk for further info.

 

Storytelling and mixed arts – Drawing on Wisdom

You’ll be taking stories from older members of the community and making art about it. You could make a poem, a collage from magazines, a drawing/painting or a song. You’ll find the stories on our website and you can send us what you make – we’ve put the ways to share at the bottom of this factsheet.

Poetry and spoken word – Lifelines to Link Us 

In this group you’ll work with local poet Dan. You’ll be making poems to create a collection of all the groups work. Dan is making activity sheets and making a crowd-sourced poem based on suggestions from the group.

Photography and mixed arts – An Outside Space

You’ll be drawing/painting, taking photos, making collages or music inspired by what you like outdoors. It could be something on your daily walk, while you’re shopping, or in your garden. Each week there’ll be a weekly theme to help inspire you.
