Jazanne Arts is a Community Interest Company that specializes in working with older people and those living with dementia. We provide a range of reminiscence workshops and arts activities both in the community, in homes and day centres. Our aim is to give a voice to older people, support their artistic work and enable ‘successful aging’.
This summer, Jazanne Arts will tour ‘Exchanging Dreams’ to day centres and older people’s clubs in and around London. ‘Exchanging Dreams’ is an interactive musical show that uses reminiscence, drama, music and dance to explore the relationship between two friends from their childhood to their older age. This show is fully funded by the Arts Council England and so is available for free, but places are going fast so contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details as soon as possible to book the performance.
