Lonely Roads

18/11/2015

Fusion Arts in collaboration with Age UK

In 2014, Fusion Arts collaborated with Age UK for Lonely Roads, an intergenerational project designed to promote awareness of loneliness in both old age and youth: the two times when we are most likely to experience loneliness in our lives.

The art events

Engaging with the wider Oxfordshire community, Fusion hosted several arts events including One Bowl, a social sculpture performance by Dianne Regisford, as well as workshops to create a clay figurine installation for the Elder Stubbs Festival and the Blackbird Leys Fair. Workshop participants generated ideas, words, and textual material to capture their unique thoughts on isolation and loneliness in youth and old age.

Gathered over two months, these ideas were used by prize-winning poet Charles Bennett and highly-acclaimed British composer Bob Chilcott to inspire a new choral work, A Mass for Our Age, as part of a national campaign to promote awareness of loneliness in these two age groups.
