Back In The Day – Home, Work and Play

Funded by Arts Council England.

Creative Paths (EM) CIC co-produced with residents and citizens of care settings an art book and book bag inspired by their memories of childhood.

These books will be used for reminiscence with older people, and via the Education library services and Nottingham libraries they will be available for children studying KS1 History.

Participants explored common themes of childhood. Quotes and stories from participants inspired artwork created by them and content for the book. The project shared the value of the creative potential of older people, and helps children empathise with how childhood has changed, dissolving generational barriers.
