Generations in Action – seeking participants – Scariff Library

The 'Generations in Action’ group, in collaboration with Scariff Public Library, is seeking participants, 6 older people and 6 children ( 7 to 11 years old ), to take part in an intergenerational project. The project, under the guidance of artist Isabelle Gaborit, will involve the creation of an elderly person’s memory book, whereby the children and older person will make collages or paintings based on some aspect of the older persons past, be it a favourite memory, poem, picture, movie, person, book etc. All the artwork will be bound by the artist into a memory book. The completed project will be publicly launched as part of the nationwide 'Bealtaine festival - celebrating creativity as we age'. The project will run for 6 weeks, on Saturday mornings from 11 to 12, starting on the Saturday 21st of April. All materials will be provided.
