Body Wisdom in the Community

Ongoing outreach projects working with older people throughout the northwest...

Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company in partnership with Praxis Care and the Body Wisdom group developed a project for the Arts and Older People Programme managed by Arts Council NI.

Professional dance artists of the Echo Echo Ensemble, voluntary experienced participants of the award-winning Body Wisdom project, along with professional musicians, worked with participants at Praxis Care’s Richmond Hall setting over a twelve-week programme during 2018.

This project was supported by the Arts and Older People Programme managed by Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and by Praxis Care.

The Arts and Older People’s Programme was established by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland in 2010 and is now a cross-governmental partnership with funding from the Public Health Agency and The Baring Foundation.

We are pleased to announce that further funding for the project to continue in 2018 has been secured from the Derry City and Strabane District Council Community Support Fund, and in 2019 from the ACNI Arts and Older People Programme.
