Grandparents and their grandchildren take part in an intergenerational exchange sharing art. The day is completed with a public sharing at the museum.

‘Magic Me’ is involved in several intergenerational art projects which are led and designed by musicians, dancers, photographers, printmakers, writers and drama specialists.

‘Magic Me is helping to fight ageism through its projects ‘Bin Ageism’ and ‘Shared Views’ which brings together youth ambassadors and older people champions to challenge negative stereotypes of young and older people. The organization also runs the innovative Cocktails in Care Homes Program which brings together people in their 20's and 30's with older people.
