Love Grows was made possible with funding from The Baring Foundation and Arts Council England’s Celebrating Age fund with additional support from Kent County Council and the Whitehead Monckton Charitable Foundation.
Moving Memory present Love Grows
In the garden, every seed is nurtured, every plant is cherished. In the Moving Memory garden, the generations are nurturing, cherishing and helping each other to grow. In our dome-shaped “potting shed”, you’ll find stories of love and tenderness from young and old, told through movement, sound and digital installation. You can pop in at any time – and tell us about your stories of love – or watch out for our special dance performances during the day.
Love Grows is the result of a six-month project led by Moving Memory and Intergen31 in partnership with Gulbenkian. Children from four primary schools across Kent were supported to talk to older people in their local area about the music, dances and pictures that represent “love” for them.
