Founded by Robin Lloyd-Jones in 2017, Autumn Voices is an organisation based in Scotland that seeks to celebrate creativity in later life. We welcome everyone aged 60 and over, and aim to dispel many of the negative stereotypes associated with getting older. We focus instead on positive ageing and the tonic provided by creativity in later life.

OCTOBER 2023 UPDATE
Autumn Voices recently became a charity. We hope this will make it easier for us to raise funds for our activities, both online and face-to-face. We discussed the transition at our AGM in January, the minutes of which you can read here.
In the meantime do keep an eye out for our news. We have completed Here We Are!, our songwriting project with Sophie Bancroft and The Pathhead Choir. Their three concerts at midsummer in around Edinburgh were a great success, and we are looking at ways to make the songs more widely available, as recordings and scores. Currently we’re running more creative writing workshops with Jane Archer at Birnam Arts, and at the end of the month we’re running a haiku day with Eskdalemuir Expressive Arts.
