Jacksons Lane's new film-based project Our Movie will benefit older people across Haringey by helping tackle loneliness and isolation.
The idea for this Big Lottery-funded project was brought to life by a group of older people who attend Jacksons Lane's monthly Social Lunches. They proposed to make a film, ‘Our Movie’, which will be a tool to empower older people to engage within their Haringey services, groups and community. At the end of the project, the film will be promoted through Haringey networks.
We are looking to recruit people over 55 to help bring our older people’s ideas to life. The group will also work with young people to bring the intergenerational elements in place.
‘Our Movie’ will also encourage older people to engage with services they may not be currently accessing that will be beneficial for them.
The film will be created over weekly sessions, including drama workshops, which take place every Thursday from 10.30am-12.30pm. In these sessions participants will start creating their films and working on their drama skills.
