We had a successful launch of Cultural Companions on Wednesday 24th April in Solstice.  It was officially opened by Leas Cathaoirleach, Cllr Jimmy Fegan and there was music from cellist Grainne Hope. There was afternoon tea and a chance to meet new people and to network with new cultural companions.

For those of you who don’t know what cultural companions is about:

Many of us would probably go to a lot more plays, films, concerts and exhibitions if only we had someone with the know-how, transport or shared interest to get us going! That’s where ‘Cultural Companions’ comes in. Based on Age & Opportunity’s highly successful Cultural Companions initiative in Dublin, Cultural Companions Meath aims to provide increased opportunities for older people to engage with Meath’s vibrant cultural scene. The initiative will create a local network of like-minded people with an interest in the arts. There is an emphasis on peer support and independence, so Cultural Companions can sign up to become part of the larger network by attending Cultural Companions events at Solstice and other venues throughout the year, or just socialise independently through the Cultural Companions Directory!

What does it cost to join up Cultural Companions Meath? Nothing! You can simply sign up, socialise, attend free Bealtaine Festival events and keep abreast of other ticketed events throughout the year!

If you are interested in signing up to become a Cultural Companion please contactemma@solsticeartscentre.ie or Solstice Box Office on 0469092300

Cultural Companions is in collaboration with Meath Arts Office, Meath Library Service and Age & Opportunity
