Forest arts programme launching for the over 50s in Bridgend

Published on 14 March 2023 06:32 PM

Age Cymru in partnership with community arts organisation Tanio has organised a series of well-being sessions for the over 50s using creative skills within the natural environment. Tanio will be delivering taster sessions using specially trained forest arts practitioners on Friday 24 and Friday 31 March 2023, and will then deliver a free 12-week programme in the spring.

Refreshments will be provided, while support with transport and access is also available. 

Lisa Davies, Tanio’s Chief Executive says “We’re delighted to be partnering with Age Cymru to bring forest arts to older people in Bridgend. We have seen the huge benefits that being creative in nature brings through our Forest Arts Schools programme and can’t wait to bring people together in some of our wonderful outdoor spaces.” 

Kelly Barr, Age Cymru’s Arts and Creativity Programme Manager says “For many of us, the last few years have helped us to appreciate the natural world around us, through daily walks and meeting socially outside. It is widely recognised that being in nature has a positive impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. We hope that this pilot project will demonstrate the benefits of bringing together creativity and the outside world!” 

The project, funded by Natural Resources Wales Resilient Communities fund, will take place in woodlands in Bridgend County Borough. For more information about the project and how to book a place call Kelly Barr on 02920 431 576 or email
