Dance Limerick will continue their Creativity in Older Age project with four artists associated with Limerick, to produce short dance works for presentation at residential care homes. Dance Limerick has recently approved a new Equality and Inclusion policy, and the project enables Dance Limerick to expand its civic role within the county, and to bring dance outside of its own premises, while providing residents of care homes with a high quality experience of dance and social interaction with artists.
This project will continue to engage and perform with a minimum of 10 plus residential care homes in Limerick until the end of December 2021.
The artists will provide two workshops in each of two homes. These workshops will explore residents’ favourite music, some of their stories and will include some simple movement and stretching. These will be carried out in line with current Covid-19 restrictions and government guidelines will be followed.
The project will continue to support positive aging by enabling residents at care homes to meet with artists and to see and discuss their performances.
