Wearpurple Arts is run by Age UK Cheshire and is supported by Cheshire West and Chester Council. The project gives people over the age of 50 the opportunity to work with professional artists to learn new skills and gain confidence in their creative abilities.
Wearpurple believes that participation within the arts has a positive effect on peoples well being. The arts help to raise peoples self esteem, confidence and motivation and these experiences have wider reaching benefits in the everyday lives of the people involved.
Since the project started in March 2001, Wearpurple has employed artists of various media to work with local groups, individuals, day care centres and residential homes across the Borough, resulting in a wealth of new work examples of which can be seen on the project’s Wear Purple
