The Power’s In The Word brings together young people and seniors to write, illustrate and perform stories and poems.

 

Kingston’s Intergenerational Project will focus on story telling through the medium of spoken word, poetry and print workshops.  Workshops will cover both technical and expressive aspects of storytelling.  We are currently seeking expressions of interest from both young people (12 to 25 years) and older people (55+ years) who are interested to participate in this year’s project. All skill levels and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.  This years Intergenerational Project will take place at our Westall Community Hub, 35 Fairbank Road, Clayton South.

 

Applicants must complete an Expression of Interest Form and attend an interview at Westall Community Hub.

 

The Intergenerational Project will provide the following opportunities:

  • Developing skills in storytelling
  • Connecting with people of all ages and across generations
  • Sharing stories
  • Opportunities for mentoring
  • Working with acclaimed writer Emilie Zoey Baker and printer Adrian Spurr

 

There will be 12 workshops run between June and October 2018.   

 

A launch will be held in early October to feature and celebrate participants’ work throughout the project which will coincide with Kingston’s Senior Festival.

Intergenerational projects focus on understanding human interaction and the value of treating all generations with mutual respect and dignity. Knowing how generations relate to each other is an essential component of cultural and social understanding. Intergenerational projects provide the opportunity for both older and younger people in the local community to connect through common interests. Kingston has successfully coordinated Intergenerational projects since 2012.
