Memories Made!

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Memory Box events over the half term.

The workshops aimed to encourage different generations to share family stories, to ‘catch’ them in the memory boxes for the future.

This echoes the aim of our project, to capture the memories of Elder migrants, to ensure their stories are preserved for future generations of historians.

We had families from the Philippines, Brazil, England, India, Romania, Cameroon and more. There were all sorts of stories and some wonderful art works created.

We are busy planning more events to celebrate the migrant stories for the Easter holidays so keep an eye out.

Join Us!

 

The Generations of Learning project aims to bring together people from different local communities, young and old, to share experiences and learn from one another.

The core of the project will be carrying out interviews with 30 Elders from the Pakistani and the Irish communities, to record their experiences, using these to create an exhibition, a short film, and online content like this blog.

During the exhibition, there will be a series of public events such as visits to local schools, reminiscence sessions, and family arts and crafts story-telling workshops.

As well as Elders willing to share their stories, we are looking for ten volunteers to help deliver this exciting project, while building their own skills and confidence.
