Looking for four volunteers in South London for part-time one month engagement to promote  and support Creative Generation,  a community

intergenerational engagement project to allow young people and older people to have a voice of expression about issues of concern. We are

developing this project in collaboration with High Trees Community Development Trust in Tulse Hill. 

 

Creative Generation is an intergenerational participatory audiovisual project designed by Big Bang Lab, aiming to create links between communities of residents living in Housing Estates and neighbourhoods in London, starting in Tulse Hill.  Creative Generation is an attempt to restore a sense of commonplace and a better understanding of each other's narratives in order to build a better future. Some stories can get lost forever so archiving the conversations and interviews on video is important for the community and for future generations. This project is a combination of creative oral history with civic lead journalism using video as a tool to capture stories, travel on time to the past, to the future and maybe come up together with new solutions to old problems.
