Active Bodies Active Minds
Active Bodies: Active Minds was a Research and Development project led by Akademi’s Education and Community team and a small group of artists, project workers and professional researchers.
Funded by The Baring Foundation, the project took place in the early part of 2012 and followed on from Inter-Action (2011) as the second phase of a larger initiative focusing on community dance practice, health and wellbeing with older adults, in particular with Bengali older people. The outcomes of Inter-Action informed both the planning and delivery of Active Bodies: Active Minds with regard to the dance and research activity. This project focused on work with one group of participants from the Surma Centre in Camden.
