Shining light on skills and experience

Acknowledging an individual's skills and experience is empowering and can lead to a deep understanding between people. Participants will be involved in each stage of the project so that it becomes a shared endeavour in which participants can find a new creative outlet. Whether it's a community theatre project, an oral history project, a story book, or an issue lead piece of work, this work triumphs in celebrating each person's contribution.

An older person's theatre company devised, produced and performed this puppet performance to primary schools. The cast chose to address consumerism and sustainability issues and centred the story around their experience of making do and mending.
