ACHF Arts Access
Central Square will strengthen relationships with staff and residents of three Pope County Nursing Homes by providing this opportunity for artistic accomplishment. This outcome will be considered a success by how the residents choose to participate in the creative and performance aspects of Playing With Memories, the artistic quality of their play and how the experience lifts their spirits. 2: Playing With Memories can be accomplished with most Nursing Home participants regardless of their physical or other age related limitations. Success of the project will be evidenced by the numbers of participants in each Nursing Home, their sustained involvement in the storytelling and creative phase of the script and songs and their interest and willingness to participate in the performance phase and by their interest in ever doing this project again sometime.
Twenty-six elderly adults participated in creating and performing an original play with music on the grand stage of Central Square. 2: Most of the participants were in wheel chairs and suffered from age related health issues. And yet the project was so important to them, they seldom missed any of the creative sessions.
