For one week LPM Artists took over the common room at Almelo House, part of Community Gateway Housing in Preston.
Whilst building relationships with the residents and discovering interests and ambitions, we delivered a range of arts activity supporting health and wellbeing. Seated dance, yoga, singing, music, games and conversation all made for a positive, fun and creative week.
We hope to build on the successes of this pilot, working with other Community Houses in the future.
A unique collaboration between the L'Arche Preston, UCLan Dance students, Lisa Simpson Inclusive Dance and LPM.
This project brings together dancers with and without disabilities to discover dance, choreography and collaboration. Workshops will be led by UCLan's Kerstin Wellhofer, Lisa Simpson, Helen Gould and George Adams.
