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 sessions enable older people to explore and interrogate the relationship between arts & culture and ageing through discussion and creative writing. Sessions are led by Sarah Butler, a novelist who specialises in socially engaged practice and place specific writing.
Wednesday 15 November, 11am -1pm - Book Online
Join writer, Sarah Butler, for a relaxed creative writing workshop as part of the Elders Investigate programme. Sarah will lead you through a range of creative exercises exploring what age-friendly culture might look like in Manchester and beyond. No experience necessary – just come with an open mind.
