Chat Back with Wyldwood Arts

We are working with Wyldwood Arts with their Chat Back project. Chat Back is an intergenerational, creative arts project. From the Wyldwood Art's site:

Chat Back is the intergenerational project devised by Wyldwood Arts working in partnership to deliver creative arts projects with the old and young.

Chat Back works with education partners and artists in residential and care home settings across the South West.

The engagement model is unique to each community and allows for integration, education and nurturing through guided reminiscence. It builds relationships between generations, breaking down stigmas and unifying communities. Older people's voices and stories are heard, young people's creativity is encouraged whilst creating a safe and secure space for sharing, gaining confidence and trust.

The results are performances which incorporate music and movement based on the stories that have been shared - recreating precious memories whilst making new ones.

Chat Back is now running across Bristol, in North Somerset, Herefordshire and coming soon to Gloucestershire.
