Connecting people, ideas, and support from the crowd to make Leicester an even better place!
As part of the Gujarati Arts, Culture & Heritage festival on 7th July 2018 in Leicester, we are arranging a free folk music gathering for the elderly community. This is to increase their engagement and participation in a live traditional performance, which we understand through conversation with them that they will find more accessible than an evening performance.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This event will help overcome the isolation felt by many older people in the community, enable interaction with others and promote social inclusion. The event will help elderly participants reconnect with their cultural and traditional music which in turn has been shown to be something that reduces stress and stress-related illnesses. Listening to songs and music and music that they know and love, and that brings back memories of their younger times, will have positive emotional, mental and spiritual impacts. As well as having fun with friends and family in a safe environment, it will have a positive impact on the health and well being of those attending.
