Renew: Arts & Older People

New strand for Well Festival 2020 

For Well 2020, we are delighted to introduce Renew, a new multi-arts strand to support older people, to bring joy and creativity and to impact positively on participants’ physical and mental wellbeing in this challenging year.  Drawing on the experience and talent among WHAT’s panel of artists and beyond, Renew offers opportunities for older people to experience and participate in music, visual art, creative writing, movement and poetry, and will take place at a number of healthcare settings, in Garter Lane Arts Centre and in people’s homes.  See below for details.
All activities are free of charge but require registration.  To register, please contact Waterford Healing Arts Trust (051) 842664 / what@hse.ie
Renew is funded by Creative Ireland under their Creativity in Older Age programme.  See also www.wellwaterford.com
