Our project improves access to drama training for people living in London over 60 years old, through the creation of a resident drama company of elders for active participants, supported by community activities and observing opportunities for those who wish to be passively involved.
It ran from 12:00 PM, 5 December 2011 to 12:00 PM, 22 December 2011

Camden Council's Joint Strategic Needs Assessment 2010 has identified a gap in physical activity provision for the over 60s and states that adult learning should be prioritised. Given the UK's ageing population and the Office of National Statistics figures showing a large increase in the 45-64 year old age group over the next 5 to 10 years, the need for these types of services will be set to increase in the future.
As a leader in our field, RADA has a strong desire to promote positive opportunities to access drama training for all people regardless of age. The Elders Company aims to increase access to training; enable older people to achieve their potential, improve mobility, increase self confidence and reduce isolation. It will also offer an arena for social interaction, self expression and a space to exercise both body and mind.
