Explore how colour affects confidence with Age Friendly workshop

03 March 2022
Derry City and Strabane District Council will host a free workshop on Wednesday 9th March for people to explore more about being image confident and the colours to wear that best suit them.
The workshop is being delivered as part of the Council's Age Friendly programme which is aimed at supporting persons aged 50+ years across the Council area, and is supported by funding from the Public Health Agency. It is one of nine different workshops taking place throughout the month of March.
On Wednesday, there will be an opportunity to learn more about how the colours you wear can help give assurance to re-engage and re-connect with society, help build your confidence, and to address social isolation and loneliness.
It will be an in-person event held at the Holywell Trust on Bishop Street where attendees will receive a presentation on colour analysis and how to be image confident. For those unable to attend, there will be an opportunity to join the presentation via Zoom.
Following the presentation and discussion, there will also be a number of one-to-one mini appointments for people to get a bespoke colour analysis completed by an image consultant. These will be delivered between 11.30am and 4.45pm, with booking required in advance.  
Ciara Burke, Age Friendly Co-Ordinator with Derry City and Strabane District Council, said: "We are really looking forward to this workshop which will explore more about how colour can affect our mood and confidence. It will share some helpful tips and information about subtle changes that can be made that will boost emotions and hopefully leave participants feeling more confident about themselves.
"While the event is open to all genders and we welcome all participants, there is a link with International Women's Day taking place the previous day on Tuesday 8th March, and we feel that this is an opportunity to make International Women's Day your day and to do what you can to truly make a positive difference."
The in-person event starts at 10.30am on Wednesday 9th March, with tea and coffee available. 
Places are limited, therefore, to book please contact the DCSDC Age Friendly Co-ordinator by telephone on 028 7125 3253 or email
