Welcome from the Chairperson

When Arts 50 Alive! first started back in 2000 very few organisations had a strategy or had even thought of intergenerational practice…

… we have come a long way since then developing projects to bring the generations together.

We are low key, but effective! We are local to our member organisations and yet we have been very successful in encouraging local people of all age groups to work together. We believe in turn, this builds strong relationships and flourishing communities.

This website should inspire any organisation wishing to develop or improve their intergenerational practice. The projects are often fun, leading to lasting outcomes, which can impact greatly on participant’s lives.

We have enjoyed developing Arts 50 Alive! over the years and still believe intergenerational work has something to offer everyone in local communities.
