Creative Writing Workshops for Over 60s

Elders Investigate

  • 19 March 2018 - 24 May 2018
  • The Front Room

Elders aren’t just older – they’re wiser. In a good society, older people are respected for their experience, for their knowledge and for everything they can teach us.

The Royal Exchange Elders Company is for everyone aged 60+ who wants to feel connected to new people and ideas, develop performance skills and make boundary-pushing theatre that challenges negative stereotypes of ageing.

"I am not the same person who joined The Elders on that very first day. Nothing else I do in my activities or, indeed, have done in the past has brought my new found confidence I am now experiencing. I want to shout from the rooftops, ‘look out world, here I come. And if I can do it, so can you."

ELDERS INVESTIGATE is a programme of stand-alone workshops led by writer Sarah Butler for everyone over 60 who wants to take part in creative writing sessions to explore the relationship between arts and ageing.

Join writer, Sarah Butler, for a fun, relaxed creative writing workshop. We will take inspiration from the work of older artists whose work engages with cities and urban space. No experience necessary, just bring a pen, paper and an open mind.

Please note: The session on Thursday 24 May will leave the building and take a short walk to find inspiration. Everyone is welcome and this isn’t a walking tour so we won’t be travelling far. Sarah will adapt the walk to meet the needs of the group. If you want to discuss your access requirements please contact Box Office.
