We are delighted to have been mentioned in a Motion of Support in The Scottish Parliament, congratulating us our Reminiscence Project to support residents of Care Homes throughout Perth and Kinross, supported by The National Lottery Community Fund. It will feature history, stories and songs set in our stunning landscapes, explorations of vintage memorabilia and lots of guidance and encouragement for participants to write and record life stories and recollections as well as music playlists. Participants will be invited to showcase their work in an exhibition called Brighter Days Ahead, supported by Culture Perth and Kinross.
Special thanks to residents of Richmond House and Ancaster House in Crieff, who have agreed to become our first Ambassadors for the project. Our Brighter Days Ahead Gallery will feature a flavour of their work. Sending a huge thank you to Richmond House residents for allowing us to showcase their work.
Who We Are
Generating Opportunity CIC is an inclusive arts project which works with individuals who use support.
We use the medium of the creative arts, including photography, drawing and painting, crafting, creative writing, reminiscence activity and film to deliver activities which encourage people to express themselves, dream big and get the most from life.
We work with clients as creative collaborators and learn from them as we share and develop common interests. This enables us to strengthen diverse voices, promote wellbeing and strengthen communities.
We work with partners to widen the networks of arts-based opportunities for our clients.
We work with artists to enable them to share what they do best and develop new ideas and opportunities through engaging with our diverse groups.
We are crafting storyboards just now, using recycled materials from Scrapantics CIC, Dundee, for clients to make up their personal archives. #NationalLottery
