'Nature Nostalgia'
For Care Homes

Care Home Touring Schedule:

Barefooted are also offering a FREE 1 hour workshop to 8 Care Homes / Retirement Villages as part of this project.


The workshops will be delivered by a dance artist and a musician both highly experienced in working with older participants. The project aims to create both an immersive and therapeutic experience by combining movement, music and nature to help them uncover memories and reminisce about childhood experiences. This project not only promotes physical activity and mental well-being but also fosters a sense of nostalgia and connection with nature and each other, stimulating meaningful conversations among peers and staff.
