Rooms with a View: Disrupting and Developing Narratives of Community through Intergenerational Arts Practice
Magic Me invites you to the launch of the Rooms with A View report By Dr Caoimhe McAvinchey, Drama, Queen Mary University of London on Wednesday 20th April.
Magic Me is one of the UKs leading providers of intergenerational arts projects. Based in East London Magic Me’s annual programme brings together younger and older people for mutual learning, benefit and enjoyment.
The Rooms with a View report will document and examine the creation of Speak As You Find, an intergenerational site-specific performance in Tower Hamlets in 2015. Building on Magic Me’s existing research detailing innovative models of practice, how particular art forms support the development of relationship building, women-only programmes and work with cultural collections, Rooms with a View attends to the creation of public spaces for dialogue in community contexts. The research is informed by two questions:
How can intergenerational arts practice facilitate conversations about community with the people who live in them?

Funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
