Hip seniors urged to hit workshop

‘Hip hop’ seniors are being sought to join in Byron Council’s intergenerational musical workshop during NSW Seniors Week starting next Thursday.

In collaboration with Mullumbimby High School and supported by Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC), the council is running a free musical workshop for 20 seniors and 20 young people.


The council’s aged and disability officer Karen Ingleman said the morning would be a fun-filled cross-generational opportunity for seniors and young people to join together through music.

She said senior people have a wealth of life experiences and the engaging workshop will offer them a new way in which to share their stories with young people.

“We’ve already had a registration from one family with three family generations of daughter, mother and a 91-year-old grandmother who are keen to join in the workshop,” she said.

The ‘Hip Hop Replacements’ musical workshop is being led by well-known and experienced facilitators Greg Sheehan and Ollie Heathwood.

Bookings are essential and lunch will be provided as part of the workshop.

If you are over 50 and would like to be part of this fun musical experience, or would like more information, Karen Ingleman at the council on 6685 9346 or email

NSW Seniors Week runs from March 21 to 28.
