Creative Generations was an intergenerational project intended for children, young people and older people to come together and work together in the Abbey Ward. The aim of the project was to engage different generations by working together on a creative arts project to help them understand each other’s perspectives. It provided an opportunity for people to make friends and support networks, and take pride in their achievements and the artworks they had created.
Organisations, participants, groups and community centres from the Abbey area were invited to partner in the project.
This project contained sessions working with young people, sessions with older generations and sessions that collaborate all age groups together to encourage team work, communication between younger and older people within the community.
Some of the sessions involved working at the Beckett children’s centre with young people, working in the medium of clay modelling, The session at the Stonehill Nursery, children worked together to create a piece of artwork using block printing.
