In partnership with Buckinghamshire council

The Art of Ageing Well

We are excited to work in partnership with Buckinghamshire Council, to produce a series of creative workshops. The purpose of those workshops is to foster artistic expression and community engagement, focusing on residents' perceptions of ageing in Buckinghamshire. These workshops will provide participants with opportunities to develop their creative skills (in particular storytelling, writing and filmmaking) through the exploration of what it means to age well in Buckinghamshire.
