Young at Arts: Anne

Young at Arts - Anne

Anne lives in Leeds. In 2016 she joined a group of older adults in Richmond Hill, who meet to dance.

They’ve been brought together by Young at Arts, a two-year project, part of Time to Shine, a six-year programme delivered by Leeds Older People’s Forum and funded through Big Lottery Fund Ageing Better.

Time To Shine takes a city-wide approach to addressing the social isolation of older people.

Young at Arts is creating social opportunities through culture and the arts, and is a partnership between Leeds Grand Theatre & City Varieties, Northern Ballet, Opera North, Phoenix Dance Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse and Yorkshire Dance.

This film was created by Michael Wray, Director of Zemap, with assistance from the members of the Richmond Hill group, in autumn 2016.
