We can all benefit from the greater inclusion of older voices and perspectives in the arts, and that the benefits for participants include personal fulfilment, the creation of meaning, an opportunity for life-long learning, social linkages, celebration, communication, dignity and self-esteem, empowerment and maintaining and improving health.
Arts for an Active Mind
With Paul Cialis
Arts for an Active Mind offers a relaxed and social approach exploring visual art for the over 50s. Activities include: painting, printing and meeting artists in residence at Uillinn. The facilitating artists take a combined approach of demonstration and practical application to explore visual art techniques and contemporary practices.
Arts for an Active Mind is a life long learning initiative supported by Cork Education and Training Board.
