The workshop was attended by seniors - residents of Social Welfare Homes and Social Service Centers from Poland and Slovakia (more precisely: Social Services Center and services for seniors Zákamenné (SK), Social Services Center Horelica (SK), Poviat Social Care Home Pogodna Jesień in Cieszyn).
The activities envisaged under this project, addressed to seniors, assume the organization of three one-day, away meetings, art therapy workshops. It was the first meeting of this cycle. Thanks to these workshops, seniors and their carers had the opportunity to actively spend time in an attractive and recreation-friendly place.
The workshops had the character of an integration, music and therapeutic meeting, inspired by music and folk culture of the Polish-Slovak border. They were run by the "Skład Niearchaiczny" Music Team from Żywiec (Poland). They took place at the H20 Center in Kiczyce.
Specially for this occasion, we prepare songbooks adapted to seniors, also people struggling with dementia. They were developed in two separate copies, for various dysfunctions. This publication contains selected melodies - an accomplishment of the generations, transmitted orally, which contains an image of the tradition and culture of the Polish-Czech-Slovak borderland. In the songbooks, the appropriate layout, typography, pictograms have been used - ordering the content, and thus making it easier to read people with weaker sight and struggling with other dysfunctions that make it difficult to focus attention. Songbooks can be downloaded from our website HERE.
The leader of the project is the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation TRITIA.
The project received funding from the International Visegrad Fund in the amount of EUR 15,000.00. Project implementation period: 20/05/2018 - 31/12/2018
