Galleries engaging with older people: Pembrokeshire County Council case study

Intergenerational Project

The initial project aim was to bring together a number of older people living in St Davids and an equal number of pupils from Ysgol Dewi Sant to work together on an art activity. Up to twelve two-hour sessions were envisaged, which were to take place at Oriel y Parc in St Davids. Practical considerations, particularly around releasing pupils from their lessons, altered the design in terms of both the number of sessions and the balance of younger and older participants.

The project artist was Helen Astley
