The Wiltshire Partnership is delighted to have been awarded £99,931 by Arts Council England to deliver a wonderful project called Celebrating Age in Wiltshire. Between 2017-2020, Wiltshire Music Centre will be a lead partner in delivering arts events in community settings across the county for elderly people unable to access concert halls or theatres.
Celebrating Age offers arts, culture and heritage activity for older people in their own community settings in 6 local areas across Wiltshire (Corsham, Royal Wootton Bassett, Calne, Trowbridge, Amesbury and Salisbury). Rebecca Seymour, our Project Coordinator for Celebrating Age is working alongside arts and community organisations to deliver accessible high quality arts events for those who may feel vulnerable or isolated from their community.
I am struggling today but you have helped to get me "into the day". Thank you.Celebrating Age Event Participant
As a Music Centre we are aware of the significant impact high-quality arts events can have a person's well-being, we hope through Celebrating Age we can make this experience accessible to more people and the positive effects will last for even longer when participants share the event with others living nearby.
