Are Ye Dancing'?

"Are Ye Dancing'?" was an intergenerational project that introduced primary school pupils to local senior citizens and encouraged them to bond via the sharing of memories and participating in multi-artform workshops. Part oral history endeavour and part community partnership initiative - we aimed to empower both generations and facilitate a real relationship between these two communities. This fundamental experience built confidence and curiosity in our young people, and combated the lonliness and isolation felt by many of our senior partners.
