    Older People, Isolation and Civic Engagement



    How can arts and museum teams work with local government and their communities to support the needs of our oldest citizens?



    How can arts, museum and library spaces become critical points of engagement for the isolated old?

    How can arts and museum teams work with local government and their communities to support the needs of our oldest citizens?

    How can older people be supported to take centre stage in this process?

     

    We are hosting a national symposium exploring the potential role of arts and museum spaces in supporting the visibility and cultural engagement of the isolated old. The event will bring together cultural leaders and civic strategists interested in the design and development of cross sector alliances that support communities in developing their capacity to nurture rich and engaged lives for vulnerable and frail older people.At a time when current day service models seem no longer fit to meet the needs and challenges of increasing numbers of the isolated old, the symposium will examine initiatives that place the individual at the heart of a network of dynamic, locally based creative relationships.
