Creative challenges for over 60s

Mind the Gap is our regular performance and creative arts group for older people. As part of Wiltshire Creative Connects, we’re offering everyone the opportunity to get involved from home. We’d love you to get creative by responding to our weekly suggestions and then sharing your creations with us, we’ll then showcase your work on our website and via social media.

The challenges will be connected to the Creative Inspiration

Responding to the theme of movement our Mind the Gap group have continued to stay creative at home by working on this project.  Recalling memories of travel, moving through life and moving as a concept we have generated a range of responses through a variety of art forms including voice recordings, poetry and illustrations. This project has encouraged the group to stay creative by working with a shared brief individually but also pushing technological boundaries.
