Project summary:

The starting point for the Art Performed by Pensioners II project is clearly the positive experience in the implementation of cultural projects, which have taken place several times in the past. Taking into account the feedback received from participants in the courses held in 2019, our goal is to implement existing courses in a way that is as relevant as possible to the specifics of senior education. The courses will be concluded by presenting the activities by the participants, which for them is a significant event. For graduates of the music course, it will be a performance at ceremonial occasions, in the case of art courses, graduates will exhibit their works. Music and art courses including theoretical lectures as well as practical exercises are an integral part of education at the University of the Third Age at Masaryk University.
