Function description

Would you like to help seniors reclaim the past?
‘Hidden Treasures’ is a new activity: professional actors take the audience on a trip down memory lane by reading stories and poetry. An interesting theme is chosen for fun assignments and people start sharing memories. It is your job to assist them with this.

Hidden Treasures’ is an initiative from ‘Foundation BedtimeStories’, developed by actresss and theatre maker Guusje Eijbers. The activity starts with a professional actor reading a book. Afterwards our clients and volunteers together start on fun assignments with the help of a ‘Hidden Treasures Activity Book’.
