OUR TIME PROJECT
Based in Wiltshire, OUR TIME PROJECT Company delivers high quality theatre and movement workshops to elderly communities. We specialise in working with very frail elders (both physically disabled and active), those who have endured strokes, and those who suffer from dementia. Each workshop is a unique experience, tailor-made to the needs and requirements of each group. It is the ethos of the company to have an innovative approach to ensure life-enhancing interactive creative work.
Each workshop aims to bring out the undiscovered in each participant, drawing on and celebrating the creativity that stems from each elderly individual's life. At the core of each workshop is movement, with each session beginning and ending with simple movements that provide physical benefits for the elders. We then lead into simple improvisation exercises that both rejoice the individual’s uniqueness and unite the collective in amusement. We strive to draw out the creative potential in each person, seeking to create a fun, vibrant and life-enhancing experience. Utilising the professional expertise of OUR TIME PROJECT practitioners, the workshops aim to stimulate physical and mental activity as a step forward towards improved well-being and mental health for our participants.

The workshops use pioneering theatre techniques and movement work that the Company’s Director Sue Lee has developed over the past 17 years. Drawing from her training at the Lecoq International School and her twenty years of experience as a Theatre director, Sue Lee (B.A Hons /Diploma Ecole Lecoq) co-ordinates OUR TIME PROJECT, encouraging the creation of a direct and stimulating environment.
REACTING TO COVID-19
Due to changes arising from the Covid-19 situation, the Company is working closely with partners and funders to make sure that our workshops continue online. We endeavour to enable elders to still have uplifting experiences during these unprecedented times.
