The brilliant Luminate - Scotland's Creative Ageing Organisation - have launched a programme of online creative activities for older people at home and in care-homes:
We know that there are lots of older people at home or in care homes right now who are having to isolate from the wider world for a while because of the coronavirus outbreak, and so we've launched a new programme of online creative activities called Luminate@Home.
Short films are uploaded every Tuesday and Friday at 2pm, on Luminate’s facebook page and on our YouTube or Vimeo channels. These films have been designed to inspire and guide you through a creative activity that can be done at home or in a care home. The activities are presented by professional artists and feature different art forms including crafts, poetry, music and dance. The films will be left online so you can access them at any time.
Try your hand at a craft activity using recycled materials that you’ll find in your home, or a dance routine that you can do regardless of your fitness level, including seated if that works best for you. Sing a song that may be familiar to you, or learn a new one. We hope that you find the films enjoyable and entertaining!
The first film is below and you can visit Luminate's home-page for further details by clicking here.
