STORYTELLING

Four volunteers from our group of participants for the 2018 programme will record comparative life stories from the elderly in both their local area in Wiltshire and Swindon and in Gunjur, The Gambia, under the mentoring of a professional writer, Colin Heber-Percy.

Connecting through stories

These written stories, with portrait photographs of the same elderly from the Photography Project, will be made into a social history publication that will be distributed to the contributing communities and their schools, both in the UK and in Gunjur as well as more widely distributed.

Reconnecting generations through storytelling and recording for posterity something vital that might otherwise have been lost.

Listening to stories

Asking our young people to listen and to hear older members of their communities will be a deeply rewarding experience for all involved.

Telling stories

The telling of these stories will be transformative, not just for the young people or the older folk whose stories are being told but for the wider community, reconnecting generations and recording for posterity something vital that might otherwise have been lost.
