What is it like to be old, handicapped or sick? And who are the people who live in the nursing home round the corner? What is Alzheimers? In the Choir Project (primary education), we discuss all these things in the classroom after seeing filmed portraits of the residents of a nursing home. We then go to the nursing home so that the residents and schoolchildren, under the direction of a professional choirmaster, can form an intergenerational choir with their family and volunteers. The main objectives are positivity and pleasure.
The Choir Project is part of Care&Culture’s Two Year Project (2013-2015), which is supported by various funding bodies and organizations. You can experience current developments at a presentation every three months: Care&Culture Meeting (see: News)
