Projects and networks
The Accessible Orchestras project coordinated by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra in collaboration with the Association of Finnish Symphony Orchestras aims to develop the work of orchestras with elderly people in Finland and Great Britain over the coming years. The two-year project will support equal accessibility to culture and the arts by seeking ways of bringing orchestra activities closer to those among the ageing population who are unable to attend concerts in person. The aim of the project is to promote a sense of community and the active inclusion of elderly people through art. The project started in 2019.
