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.
Thanks to everyone who took part in this programme. Louise Lyons and team at Praxis Care and Richmond Hall. Echo Echo Ensemble Artists: Ayesha Mailey, Kelly Quigley and Zoe Ramsey with Rohan Armstrong and Mark O’Doherty. Anna Nolan and staff at Echo Echo.

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.
