Through a programme of discussion, creative engagement and group activities, by the end of this workshop many misconceptions of the opposing generation will be broken down.
Aiming to bring people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities which promote greater
understanding and respect between generations and contributes to building more cohesive communities.
Intergenerational practice is inclusive, building on the positive resources that the young
and old have to offer each other and those around them.
