Session notes: OLD PEOPLE, YOUNG PEOPLE, THEATRE AS A VEHICLE?

What is the name of the person who called the session?

PERI THOMAS

Who attended the session? (You can pass this piece of paper round and ask people to write their name on it.)

8 PEOPLE

Summary of discussion: (Notes, ideas, further questions, conclusions, recommendations for actions to take, contact details of relevant people / organisations etc)

NTW Before I leave- dementia, Manics. (an example of theatre and dementia)

Definition of theatre may have changed power the years so older people may have different views on what it should be and what it should look like.

Perhaps we should continue expanding theatre and making it more experimental between young people and old people.

Kevin talked about his Waleslab project regarding life as an older artist (in the very early stages).

There are lots of intergenerational funding opportunities at the moment for example Traveline Cymru.

Lots of people referred to the tv programme where nursery children attend care homes and old people visit schools and the benefits of that.

Reminiscence Theatre/ helping the characters to solve problems with residents’ personal stories in care homes.

There is also a theatre project regarding nursery age children and an over 50s lunch club in Cardiff.

There appears to be massive future potential within inter-generational projects in the arts and health.

Age Cymru, Gwanwyn festival and Cartrefi- examples of companies already working in this.

Crynodeb o'r drafodaeth: (Nodiadau, syniadau, cwestiynau, casgliadau, argymhellion ar gyfer camau i'w cymryd, manylion cyswllt pobl/sefydliadau perthnasol ac ati)

NTW Before I leave- dementia, Manics. (enghraifft o theatr a dementia)

Mae'n bosib bod y diffiniad o theatr wedi newid dros y blynyddoedd felly gallai fod gan bobl hŷn farn wahanol ynglŷn â beth y dylai fod a sut y dylai edrych.

Efallai y dylem barhau i ehangu theatr a'i wneud yn fwy arbrofol rhwng pobl ifanc a hen bobl.

Siaradodd Kevin am ei brosiect Waleslab ynglŷn â bywyd fel artist hŷn (yn y camau cynnar iawn).

Mae llawer o gyfleoedd ariannu rhwng y cenedlaethau ar hyn o bryd, er enghraifft Traveline Cymru.

Cyfeiriodd llawer o bobl at y rhaglen deledu lle mae plant meithrin yn mynd i gartrefi gofal a bod pobl hŷn yn ymweld ag ysgolion a'r manteision a ddaw o hynny.

Theatr Hel Atgofion/ helpu'r cymeriadau i ddatrys problemau gyda storïau personol trigolion mewn cartrefi gofal.

Ceir prosiect theatr hefyd ynglŷn â phlant oedran meithrin a chlwb cinio dros 50 oed yng Nghaerdydd.

Ymddengys fod potensial enfawr yn y dyfodol mewn prosiectau rhwng y cenedlaethau yn y celfyddydau ac iechyd.

Age Cymru, Gŵyl y Gwanwyn a Chartrefi - enghreifftiau o gwmnïau sydd eisoes yn gweithio ar hwn.
