We worked with Unfolding Theatre to organise outreach sessions with a range of community groups to explore initial themes around age friendly communities. Unfolding Theatre recorded conversations and facilitated creative exploratory exercises such as making a map of an age friendly community and writing a manifesto.
We then arranged a creativity week in each area during the summer. These were accessible and inclusive creative sessions that were open through the week in local community venues where participants developed the manifesto ideas into a performance using creative writing and spoken word. The performance was called Just Us.
