Changing Places, Common Ground – An Intergenerational Oral Histories Project

We are looking for older people to take part in project that brings young and old together in conversation. Help us to tell the story of our city through its people and to discover common ground across the generations

Salisbury Museum is running a new project in which we will work with small groups (5 or 6) of older people and a paired group of young people (ages 12 to 17). The groups will get to know one another, explore themes that are important us all and record memories and stories. This is all about conversation and the project team and volunteers are looking forward to helping the groups come together, take part in activities and chat. At the end of 5 sessions our aim is to record an ‘oral history’ from every participant.

This is a chance to learn about oral histories, listen and be listened to and to meet some new people in a safe and supportive setting.

We are working with some pre-existing groups and the young participantd will come from local schools and youth groups but we also want to offer the chance to take part to individuals in our community. We will only start this project once it is safe to do so, but we would really like to stay in touch with anyone who is interested now and to keep them updated on the project over the next few months.

I would like to take part, how can I find out more?
