Older people from Hackney and Camden have had their say on arts and cultural activities as part of a consultation by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.
A group of over 50s who are involved with Connect Hackney and Ageing Better Camden came together to contribute to the consultation on a draft culture strategy for London. The two local organisations are both part of the national Ageing Better programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund.
The Hackney and Camden over 50s revealed how important being able to enjoy arts and cultural activities can be for older people. Their comments included how cultural activities were good for their social lives, wellbeing and health.
A selection of comments shows how important participants felt culture was in their lives.
