Over 60's Project
Mad Alice has recently delivered at Blackhill & Consett Heritage Park Lodge three major and extremely successful over 60's projects led by our Artistic Director Shelley O'Brien.
Our first project funded by The Learning Revolution Transformation Fund saw us create a memory book and, working in partnership with CULTURE SHOCK TYNE & WEAR MUSEUMS, digital stories. CLICK ON THE LINK TO LISTEN TO ANDREA PARKER's (our Artistic Director's mum!) 1960's memory!
Our second project, CHRISTMAS REMINISCENCE, was delivered in partnership with Colour Your Life at Leisureworks in Nov/Dec 2013 Over 8 weekly sessions, the participants shared festive childhood memories & favourite Christmas carols. This project was delivered in conjunction with Consett Brass, Consett Junior School & St Pius XTH R C Primary School. Children & The Band provided musical accompaniment & singing, led by Musical Director David Jacskon. A specially created CD of festive memories was created. A lovely keepsake for friends and family! Colour your life is an Arts On Perscription service funded by NHS County Durham and aims to provide free access to creative activities to promote positive health & well being. This project inspired the group to produce a SCHOOL DAYS & HOLIDAYS REMINISCENCE CD in spring 2014 with Mad Alice thanks to funding from County Durham Community Foundation & Cllr Temple. All of the projects have been a great way to explore creativity & promote well-being & great fun was had by all! WATCH OUT FOR OUR NEW OVER 60'S PROJECT COMING SOON!!.........
"A great laugh and wonderful to share stories!"
