Voices in Time (Funded by Arts Council England) is an inter-generational project with young and elderly people from Hackney.
WhittyGordon projects organised workshops for older people to share their stories and experiences with young people. The young people learned filmmaking, creative writing and presenting skills. The aim of the project was to challenge perceptions of each other. By facilitating collaboration between both young and old participants, Voices in Time fostered understanding between generations and encouraged young and older people to see each other in a different light.
The young people and WhittyGordon created a short film from material produced during workshops alongside a photography booklet to document their experiences. See the film and booklet at this exhibition, and learn more about the project.
