Akademi launches new Community Learning Programme: Ageing Artfully
An exciting new project involving older adults in creative learning activities, promoting healthy living, active ageing, good food, fun and wellness all in one.
We are giving older adults the chance to re-discover themselves by taking part in creative activities and wellbeing sessions.
Exploring the themes of:
- Cooking for Health with celebrity Chef Manju Malhi
- Walking for Health with innovative Bollywalk and Dancewalks by Khavita Kaur
- Dance and Movement sessions unveiling the mystery of yoga with Krishnaa Kinkari
We are inviting older adults in Camden to join us on an uplifting journey, improving wellbeing, fitness and having fun whilst learning to be Health Champions.
These innovative education sessions will encourage personal wellbeing, with each participant making a wellness progress plan. We aim to encourage experimentation and promote a positive life approach. The project is designed for over 50’s and is open to everyone in this age group.
Celebrity Chef, Manju Malhi, will be joining us, she is known for her Simply Indian series and appearances on ITV's Saturday Cooks and This Morning. Manju was the winner of the BBC's Food and Drink competition in 1999 and has cooked with acclaimed BBC2 television chef, Antony Worrall Thompson.
The project will run from September 2012-July 2013. In partnership with The Calthorpe project in Kings’ Cross, the Surma Centre in West Euston and Camden’s Active health team.
