The Chatter Project is our theatrical pen-pal project for adults aged 65+ designed for sharing stories, making friends and creating theatre. No prior experience of theatre or art is needed, we simply ask that people come with an open mind and willingness to share.
Sessions run fortnightly during term time and are led by Theatre Facilitator Georgia Bowers, either in person during a group workshop or 1-2-1 over the phone.
We currently run The Chatter Project groups in Selsey and Chichester, and once a term participants are invited to a friendly and informal event to share the work that has been created.
There are currently spaces in both our Chichester and Selsey groups for those interested in joining and are particularly keen to hear from people who live alone or with one other person. If this sounds like you/someone you know, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01243 784437 and ask for Louise or Isabelle in our LEAP (Learning, Education and Participation) department for more information, group times and locations.
