Everybody needs a grand parent! Especially the kind that has patience, shares wisdom and listens carefully. Today and yesterday (23 & 24 September) were exciting days for the KORI Haven Programme. In an artful collaboration between ReAct (KORI Youth Theatre), Age UK and Jacksons Lane Theatre we ran creative workshops to bring that ‘elder’ energy to young people.
Magical communication happened almost out of thin air! We had elders and youth drawing and telling life stories through the ‘river of life’ activity; there was acting, song, rhythms and discussion. This took place first on 23rd with the elders, then on 24th with the young people.
