Sutton House Over 55s group
Our Over 55s group is an important part of Sutton House and has been for 20 years. Its members have helped to create many exhibitions and activities, as well as taking part in weekly activities like dancing, singing, creative writing and arts and crafts.
Formed after an intergenerational project between a local school and Hackney Caribbean Elders, the initial project worked to help people from a range of different social, cultural and economic backgrounds to enjoy and become a part of Sutton House. The short term project was so successful that the group became a permanent fixture, and is now open to anyone over 55 years old.
We usually meet for three terms a year, each of six or seven weeks, for a varied programme of activities and events, including African drumming, singing, dancing, life-drawing, creative writing, exercising, embroidering, collaging and zine- and print-making.
