The 31 creative challenges are a designed to be month of short, daily inspirations to try. Each of the challenges was created by a member of an Age UK community club, in partnership with a creative practitioner from 64 Million Artists.
The Age of Creativity Network is managed by Age UK Oxfordshire and they have organised a yearly Age of Creativity Festival since 2017. This year, the Age of Creativity Festival has had to be postponed until October. However, the Age of Creativity has created a set of (mostly) free resources for older people to use while social distancing.
Using these resources it’s possible to virtually tour the world’s best museums, listen to podcasts, take a dance/exercise class, join a choir, listen to streamed concerts, watch quality theatre productions, join a virtual festival, learn some crafting techniques or try a short university course. The choice is immense. There are also activities for people in a care home setting and for people living with dementia.
