Connectforce Calendar launch with The Horniman Museum
Updated: Apr 12, 2021
The first milestone of the month was the successful completion of our inaugural Connectforce Calendar event! This programme seeks to bring the outside in, for care homes residents and staff who are unable to access any entertainment outside their four walls. We will curate a programme of events - be it live-streamed concerts, virtual quizzes or digital poetry readings - which we will offer to our connected care homes to bring some creative stimulation and joy.
Our first event was in collaboration with the Horniman Museum in South East London, so who better to invite than our three original connected care homes in Lewisham?! Isaac and Lydia from the Horniman’s Community Engagement team took us on a VIP virtual tour of the museum’s World Gallery, where we saw artefacts from all over the globe. They even managed to find time to sneak us into the Natural History Gallery to say a quick ‘hello’ to their famous stuffed walrus. It was a truly brilliant event, and the feedback from residents has been fantastic.
HUGE thanks to Isaac and Lydia, and all at the Horniman for inviting us in.
