‘Received Wisdom’, our first Arts Council Collection exhibition at Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens was due to close to the public this week. We had planned to celebrate the final week of the exhibition by taking part in Age UK’s annual Age of Creativity Festival, bringing together and highlighting the creativity of the older people in our Sunderland community.
Received Wisdom explores the relationship between age and creativity, celebrating the work artists have made later in their lives, and the exhibition highlights what we know to be true from our work with older audiences: that age is no barrier to creativity!
Since venues across the country have closed for the time being, Age of Creativity Festival has moved online, and so have we! We’ll be sharing every Thursday in May on our social media channels to celebrate the work we have done, and continue to do, with our older audiences. So keep an eye out this month to find out about some of the marvellous work that’s been happening across our wonderful city.
In the document above Age of Creativity have suggested loads of great online activities for you to enjoy including dance, music, art and literature!
