2pm to 4pm, Blue Mountains Cultural Centre
Ageing Creatively is a Western Sydney University project that delivers innovative creative writing workshops in aged care centres. Older people with little or no writing experience come together to push the boundaries of their creativity and play and game with words to stimulate creativity and healthy cognition. In this session, WSU project leaders Melinda Jewell and Rachel Morley invite you to experience an Ageing Creatively workshop. You’ll get to sample writing techniques, which might include collage, writing cut-ups and memory generators, and you’ll meet some of the older writers they’ve been working with. All welcome, no experience needed, but bring pen and paper.
