The Imagine programme worked intensively with older people in care during 2014 – 2017. It sought to bring about an innovative programme introducing arts practice that challenges, engages, stimulates and enables participant’s access to a rich culture offer in Nottingham city and county.
The programme’s ethos was to define a person centred approach to programming with the voice of older people in care being co-commissioners and producers of new work. This approach has helped us inform our own practice for the development of ongoing work.
The following testimonials from family members of three care residents engaged with the programme, provide us with the meaning and impact from those involved.
