This report gives an outline of the Moving Well Adventure, a multi-agency collaborative initiative funded by the Arts Council England through Canterbury Festival’s Prosper: Out of the Storm initiative designed and produced by The Map Consortium and Workers of Art. The process at the core of the Adventure proposed a better understanding of the relationship between the dance/movement and digital technology, and the overlapping concepts of health and wellbeing as people age.

The Adventure commenced in late April 2013 and culminated in a series of events which took place in October and November. Facilitated by additional funding these comprised a performance of More Please at the Gulbenkian Theatre Canterbury on the 28th October, a subsequent performance at the Theatre Royal Margate, 14th November, and an open community workshop at the De Le Warr Pavilion, East Sussex.
