Magic Me is the UK’s leading provider of intergenerational arts projects. We specialise in running creative projects which bring together young people aged nine plus and older people, 55 plus, for mutual benefit, learning and enjoyment.
Based in Tower Hamlets, East London since 1989, we work with individual older people and with existing groups through over 50’s Clubs and resource centres, nursing homes, day centres and community or cultural organisations. Local school students and young people participating in their own time are partnered with the older adults, and the mixed group come together regularly, usually on a weekly basis.
Participants are encouraged and supported to work together, so that real relationships can develop. The activities are designed to stimulate both age groups, fostering conversation and an exchange of ideas.
"Magic Me is the best thing going on, because it is actually changing people’s lives"
