Pick My Project: The Not Forgotten Program
Bringing public awareness and support to the forgotten stage performers.
Four performance training weekends developed to offer support and training to stage performers who have lost hope as they have been discarded from the industry due to their age.
We aim to give them hope, dignity, respect and value their contribution to the arts. Pat Wilson & Adrian Barnes have never given up on their passion for entertaining others and are both leaders in their fields of performance training.
The training is open to performers of old, giving real-life skills to cope with their current situations in a safe and entertaining setting.
The entertainment industry is one of the hardest and most unrewarding industries that provide our community enjoyment as well as reflecting the reality of today, tomorrow and yesteryear. The passion within performers isn’t always seen reciprocally with work or an ongoing income.
This series is to gauge the needs and develop a series of services for aged performers, assisting with their long-term health and well being.
Though this is a pilot series we believe it will add valued insights into the needs of this forgotten segment of our arts community.
We will not forget their achievements, large or small.
