Intergenerational Champions

Working with a group of older community volunteers aged from 55 years to 91 years old and young people aged from 13 years though to 24 years old we developed an intergenerational training programme to create 14 new Intergenerational Champions! These Champions worked together over two days to develop their knowledge, understanding and benefits of intergenerational practice.They are now able to share this experience out in the community.

The Fablab

The University of Sunderland's Fablab experience was a highlight for both young and old alike. The Fablab staff worked with 36 children to help them create their own Syedpur designs that were then transferred to a T-Shirt Design. The project also worked with a smaller group of young Asian women form the Bangladesh community, who developed and created vinyl printed Henna designs, that were used as part of the final exhibition.
