Spare Tyre is delighted to be part of a ground-breaking new partnership of organisations working to bring quality arts to older people living in Haringey
We are working alongside Jacksons Lane, the theatre leading the partnership, and Homes for Haringey. Over three years, we are collaborating with Haynes Day Centre, specialising in activities for people with dementia and carers. Other partners in the project include Haringey Public Health and the Bridge Renewal Trust.
Together is an ambitious and innovative project: Haringey’s diverse ageing community has many distinct needs. Together unites partners from across the local authority, housing, voluntary and arts sectors to embed a new way of working. The project is supported by the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, City Bridge Trust, for its three-year lifespan.
Spare Tyre is acknowledged as a leader in the field of dementia and theatre, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge around engagement with people with dementia and their carers.
Arti Prashar, Artistic Director, said: ‘This project is all about bringing people from different sectors together, putting wellbeing at the heart of everything we do, and working at a very local level. The arts have the power to make these connections, creating real social change.
We’ve worked with people with dementia and carers since 2010, and this project is another exciting step forward for us in developing this work.’
This project began October 2017 and continues until 2019.
