KWoA Pride of Place intergenerational project

The Pride of Place intergenerational project encourages older people to get to know their younger neighbours better through sharing stories, memories and interests across the generations.

Supported by Awards for All, local arts charity Kendal Windows on Art (KWoA) has been working with older people, children and young families based in Milnthorpe. The project has provided accessible local activities that have given more opportunities to "get out and about", encouraging walking in the local area and enjoyment in being active. The older participants have greatly inspired local children, developing creative activities together from the stories that they shared. Many of the older people's memories were from their childhoods during or just after WW2 which the children found fascinating. Some of the shared stories that inspired everyone can be found in further posts in this blog..
