To celebrate Global Intergenerational Week which started on the 25th April, Percussion Play highlighted all the positive ways intergenerational music-making can enable inclusive play and bring both young and older people together so they can both benefit.
The goal of the week was to inspire intergenerational practice and to connect people of all ages, especially the younger and older generations.
“We are proud our instruments can help support intergenerational play and we encourage everyone to understand the important benefits intergenerational play can bring to both young people and the elderly. As world leaders in the manufacturing of outdoor musical instruments, we aim to champion inclusive play and create instruments that can be used by everyone, regardless of age”.
