Creative Connections

Community members over the age of 60 from Batchley, Winyates and Redditch town centre explored a mixture of drawing techniques, painting styles and West African Djembe drumming at three separate participatory events designed to connect local people with others through a fun, creative activity. The sessions were developed with Inspire Community Training, The Older People’s Forum and Batchley Support Group after listening to what local people wanted to try. The activities catered for all levels of musical experience and gave people a chance to try something new to them while bringing them together as part of a group.
