Being Curious: Movement & Music
December 17, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree – $20
Being Curious is a series of presentations from local SA and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures.
This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Thursday 17th December: Movement & Music; Daisie Chain
Being confined does not mean that we should stop enjoying music and movement. Interestingly while these recent isolating months have presented challenges, it has also created a sense of security for people as they have been able to join in classes and activity from the comfort of place of home while being connected and engaged within their community.
The Daisie Chain was created with the purpose to inspire, entertain and bring joy through music and movement to the Aged Care and Disability sector. There are amazing benefits to music and movement, physically, mentally and emotionally for an older person. The aim is to build strength, confidence and connect people, be it the older person to their peers, staff, service providers and their families. There is a need for more fun active choices for the resident older person and The Daisie Chain offers a solution to the overwhelming task for staff in finding the right entertainers and instructors.
Outcomes of session:
- Gain inspirations from an energetic enterprise which can support the isolated older people you work with
- Develop insight into the benefits of an ordinary and typical community model in your organisational/residential setting
- Explore ways to strengthen a persons sense of fun and activity regardless of limitations
