Entelechy Arts is hosting a free online workshop on 24 November to share learning and practical tips for how to develop remote creative programmes, co-created with older people.
Based on academic research led by Queen Mary University of London, taken from the Staying Connected programme that Entelechy Arts has been running since the beginning of the pandemic, including the Meet Me… programme in partnership with the Albany, the event will share principles and practicalities for the development of remote programmes in the arts sector.
Staying Connected is a series of programmes keeping older people enjoying creativity and one another’s company when they have not been able to meet in person during 2020 and 2021. You can read more about these programmes on Entelechy Arts’ website.
The research, led by Queen Mary University of London and Entelechy Arts, is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), part of UK Research and Innovation.
This workshop will be valuable for anyone starting new programmes, or reviewing existing activities, with particular emphasis on: effective creative work with older people, co-creative practices led by communities and artists, risk-taking, remote/hybrid work, considering digital barriers, and embedding accessibility.
