Social Drama

Loneliness is twice as unhealthy as obesity for older people and while there are many services tending to the physical health needs of our grandparents there are few that specifically support their social and emotional wellbeing. Voice Arts is one of them.

Delivering a programme of free social drama classes in neighbourhoods throughout Wellington, Voice Arts is a creative space committed to bringing laughter, play and performance (back) into the lives of older people. 65 or 95, introvert or extrovert these classes help keep the mind active and creative, while building a social network of people that all live nearby.
