'Our Day Out' is a fantastic programme, funded by the Spirit of 2012 Trust, which aims to engage older people in Norfolk with culture and creativity through participatory music and dance sessions, in a dementia-friendly environment. The two-hour sessions run twice a month in Dereham, Watton, Attleborough, North Walsham, Thetford and Wells-next-the-sea, and are all led by professional artists.
We are seeking high-quality artists with experience of delivering music-making sessions in community settings to work with us on this programme over the next two years. Our sessions are fun and creative, and often give our participants the chance to experience something new. Where possible, we look to programme a series of sessions with an artist/s, allowing the group to build confidence and develop their skills.
If this is something you think you might be interested in, we would love to hear from you. Experience of working with older people and/or people living with dementia is not necessary as training can be provided.
