We invite you to join us for the Arts and Wellbeing week, organised by Eltham Arts in collaboration with Eltham Library funded by the ward funds from Royal Borough Greenwich. The wellbeing week includes a week of creative activities for all age groups followed by a day of music celebration!
Schedule for the week
Venue: Eltham Library
Eltham Arts Creating Connection Exhibition
16th – 22nd July 2022
During the pandemic, we delivered an intergenerational arts project “Creating Connections” where children from Wyborne Primary School and Church of England Primary School created stories inspired by the letters they received from the senior citizens in the SE9 area. They worked digitally with creative practitioners to create shadow puppets to act out their stories. We would like to take this opportunity to share their creations with the community and invite all members of the community to our week long Creating Connection exhibition at Eltham Library.
