Time-machine project with Streetfeast & Wicklow County Council
Streetfeast are looking for people who want to make a difference in their community.
Streetfeast & Neighbourhood Networks have teamed up with Creative Ireland and Wicklow County Council to a bring simple, fun community project to Wicklow and we want you to get involved! With an unpredictable winter ahead of us, we are worried that older people who are isolating are becoming increasingly forgotten or distanced from society. Be a part of an amazing artistic cross-generational community project to create a sense of love and connection in your neighbourhood!
We are looking for people in Wicklow to work with on our ‘community time capsule’ project, or as we like to call it, The Time Machine! The ‘Time Machine’ involves connecting young people in your neighbourhood to senior members of the area who have been cocooning.
A community organiser (that’s you!) will help to connect a teenager with a senior member of the community via phone call, zoom or socially distanced meet-up. We will provide templates for interviews and encourage a cross-generational artistic response (anything from a video or poem to a drawing or a collage- the sky’s the limit!) to try and create a unique snapshot from a multi-generational point of view.
The interview, artistic expression and professional portrait of each interviewee will then go into the digital time capsule to mark this historic time.
