The Pathhead Choir
Autumn Voices is delighted to have received funding from Creative Scotland for a new project in partnership with songwriter, workshop tutor and choir leader, Sophie Bancroft.
Third Age Plus Pioneers
Third Age Plus Pioneers was an Autumn Voices project, working with those aged over 90, which ran from autumn 2021 to summer 2022. Autumn Voices recruited five project workers, artists with experience of working with older people.
Our #CLANGERS project started in January 2021. This was principally a writing project and a nod to good daily habits for healthy creative living underpinned by eight specific themes or ideas which are the brainchild of Dr Phil Hammond.
Flash Memoir Project
This project started in July 2021 and ran for six months. Our Autumn Voices members were tasked with writing a short memoir on a different theme each month. The response was fantastic, and you can read all the entries here!
