What does creative aging look like? Music and movement brings people together. Musician and teaching artist, Anthony Hyatt, takes us into a day in the life of the Quicksilver dance company, a troupe comprised of older adults. Describing how he mirrors and responds to troupe members, deep and meaningful connections are revealed.
I have known of Janis' work for some years but have been struck by her recent commitment to working in China and also the super-human energy she has put behind this. As the original instigator of the International Creative Entrepreneurship Awards when I was at the British Council, I am delighted that she was awarded one last year and that it will take international work forward for the UK in such a progressive manner. I hope you enjoy Janis' reflections.
