Festival Of Creative Ageing – Join the R.O.A.R. Team ‘Roving Older Adult Reporters’


Positive Ageing Council Festival Of Creative Ageing – Join the R.O.A.R. Team ‘Roving Older Adult Reporters’
Help us create a documentary of the Positive Ageing Council activities throughout the festival.

We are hoping to recruit you to our R.O.A.R. Team, a group of Roving Older Adult Reporters, who will document the POSAC Festival of Creative Ageing events and activities, using smartphones and tablets and help us create a documentary film of the experiences of the older people engaging in our festival activities – you need a basic understanding of how to use a smart phone or tablet, apps and email, but we will teach you everything you need to know at our workshops in August and September (dates TBC).

These will be fun, friendly, simple, interactive sessions and you don’t need experience of film making on your
phones or tablets to take part, but you must have an interest in learning to use the technology and a little

We will also provide refreshments during the workshops

We aim to buddy our film makers with a member of the Lewisham Young Mayors Team for added support and guidance.

The workshops will be delivered with local award winning filmmaker Michael Van Der Put, who will help us produce the finished documentary. We will screen the documentary at the finale of the Festival of Creative Ageing on Silver Sunday with Trinity Laban and it will be available to view on YouTube when completed. We are finalizing the workshop details in the next month.

Please Note most filming activities will be during the day but some will be at weekends

Please register your interest NOW by emailing positive.ageing@lewisham.gov.uk for more information.
