Circus skills workshops in care homes, talent shows for the over 55s and weekly cultural challenges – older people in Hull have certainly played their part in 2017.
Supported by NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group and Spirit of 2012, one of the key priorities during Hull’s year as City of Culture was to ensure that everyone had the opportunity to get involved. Age would not be a barrier.
Some would, inevitably, be more difficult to reach than others. But by engaging with the network of groups and organisations across the city that support older people, Hull 2017 was able to bring numerous bespoke cultural experiences right to their doorstep.
