Intergenerational Workshops for young people and adults
Tue 29 Sep 2015 to Tue 6 Oct 2015
As part of the Imagine Festival of the Arts, we are holding two sets of free poetry workshops in the London Borough of Sutton this September for young people and for adults
We'll be using a mixture of group devising and individual writing techniques to generate material for an intergenerational event on 24 October, hosted by John Hegley. 

We'll be using writing produced by residents of two care homes during a series of workshops in July as our starting point, to explore our own experiences and find ways of connecting past and present. If you'd like to see some of the writing by the older participants in the project, take a look here

The workshops in September will be led by Rachel Sambrooks, with assistance from Robin Vaughan-Williams during the first session for each group.
