A bit about Open Arms Artists' Collective

Open Arms Artist Collective was born out of the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford’s Making of Me project. We are a group of independent participatory artists (and associates) based across Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, all committed to working creatively with older people.

We are interested in building on the experience and partnerships we have developed in care homes, as well as piloting new, inventive approaches in a variety of settings, using different art forms.

Our workshops are developed in response to the desires, interests and needs of the individuals/groups we work with and through dialogue with organisations, group leaders and carers. Our aim is to engage people imaginatively in our workshops in ways which increase levels of participation, both physically and mentally, and which lead fundamentally to improving the quality of people’s lives.
