An Oldie But A Goodie

Active Arts founders Nina Burchett & Fiona Mogridge along with kids from the Shine School of Confidence and residents of Selwyn Village present their Oldie But A Goodie, a heart felt mix of stories, memories and poetry …yummy in the tummy ditties and delicious bites of performance.

Active Arts has been delivering poetry sharing sessions in aged care homes since 2015.

The residents enjoy immensely these sessions expressing that it makes their time in the home worthwhile and it’s a great way to meet people. It has been said of the sessions that they are …“Wonderful. This has been really wonderful for me. We don’t have anything else like it”.

The Fringe poetry event will again bring these poetry sharing sessions to a wider audience and have you delight in the performances from Seniors.

Alongside other talent, we have performing renouned writer and poet Jenny Blood, children’s writer James Waerea, Jackie McMahon and Jeremy Younger.

Winner of Outstanding Community Engagement 2018.
