GENERATIONS OF MUSIC
Connecting and bringing together generations in their local communities through intergenerational music projects
Intergenerational Music Making, IMM is one of the UK’s pioneer of intergenerational music projects.
We are the first UK music therapy intergenerational CIC company connecting and bringing together generations in their local communities through intergenerational music therapy projects.
We bring together local schools, care homes, colleges and universities in creating exciting and meaningful music projects to improve well-being, mental health, tackle loneliness and help integrate local communities.
We believe everyone should have the chance to live life to the full. Our intergenerational music programmes give children and older people the opportunity to do so. Working together they create music projects that they can feel proud of, gain an increased sense of belonging and feelings of wellbeing.
Across our communities, people are isolated and vulnerable. It is so important, now more than ever, that communities remain strong and positive and that we do what we can to help those in need. We are calling for all creatives to step forward and spread light, love and creativity to all those around you!
Care to Create draws on the digital and non-digital, virtual and tangible.
Since the outbreak, we have been unable to offer our clients the artistic, intergenerational interventions many of them rely on. Therefore, we felt it was vital to approach the pandemic imaginatively and creatively. Social isolation and loneliness are nothing new to IMM and, now more than ever, we believe the arts have the transformative power to bring people together in ways we could not have foreseen.
