Intergenerational Forum: intergenerational practice in Arts & Wellbeing

Join us for a free online gathering, in partnership with Jazanne Arts, an informal space for arts & wellbeing providers to meet and share ideas around developing intergenerational practice in their services.

The session will be led by Annie Smol MBE and Jacqui Livingston, Founders and Directors of Jazanne Arts. Jazanne Arts is a small not for profit that places older people at the heart of our work using the arts to make connections and improve lives.

During the session, Jazanne Arts will focus on intergenerational arts projects for primary school children and people aged 65+. We will use our recent partnership project ‘My home’ as a basis to spark discussion on:  

  • Setting up intergenerational projects – finding and sustaining suitable partners
  • Structuring intergenerational projects
  • Process V product
  • Monitoring and Evaluation of projects
  • The health and well-being benefits of intergenerational projects

The webinar will provide a platform for sharing ideas, best practice, and experiences, considering solutions and informing the next steps for intergenerational practice.         

About the Intergenerational Forum:

This forum is an informal space for peer sharing and learning. We meet quarterly and anyone who is interested in developing their intergenerational practice is very welcome to join!

This forum is for arts and wellbeing providers who want to:

  • reflect on learnings from intergenerational projects
  • celebrate the successes
  • discuss the challenges
  • meet other people interested in sharing & developing intergenerational practice in their work
  • and discuss ideas for how we can create more opportunities for intergenerational connections going forward. 

Join us to share ideas, refine your intergenerational practices and meet other progressive people who are striving to innovate and excel in services for older and younger people.

About Jazanne Arts:

Jazanne Arts place older people at the heart of our work, using creative arts and reminiscence to improve resilience, wellbeing and quality of life. Our vision is to strengthen the landscape of arts for and with older people, removing barriers, providing a platform for the older ‘voice’ and raising the profile and quality of this creative work. We develop original, bold, older and inter-generational participatory projects and professional theatre of the highest standard. We use a multi- sensory approach focusing on reminiscence and creativity across generations. By sharing memories, supporting relationships and building resilience we will work together towards ‘successful aging’.
