About Time & Tide

Funded by Arts Council England, Time & Tide positively celebrates the Isle of Wight’s ageing community and our natural and cultural heritage.

Through partnership with Age UK, Southern Housing Group, local museums and galleries, Time & Tide offers older people an exciting island-wide programme including creative workshops, museum visits, and pop-up exhibitions and touring collections to inspire and engage older people.

Through our Age Friendly Island initiative and in collaboration with Age UK we will deliver a training and development programme to all partners, enabling their museums to become welcoming places to older people.

Older people are at the heart of the decision making, and Independent Arts would like to hear their ideas to ensure we facilitate an exciting programme of participatory workshops covering a range of art forms which can include photography, visual art, dance, theatre, music and creative writing.
