Museum in the Village

Jan 9, 2023

Leiria county, Portugal. Fighting elderly loneliness and solitude
through cultural heritage.

The Museum in the Village project wants to reduce loneliness and social isolation among elderly communities – aged 65 and over, living in rural secluded areas, with lower population density and with reduced access to a diverse cultural offer.

By taking art and culture to seniors, through exhibitions and artistic performances in unexpected places, approaching people’s emotional, social and artistic spheres, the project has promoted creativity among the elderly, using music and artistic collective practices.
