  • Intergenerational Project

    St Brigid’s organises Intergenerational Projects in conjunction with other local community, voluntary and statutory organisations. The Intergenerational Projects bring together local people of all ages (from younger to older generations) to enable people to get to know one another and share stories, skills and experiences on different topics. The Projects assist in building respect and understanding across the generations in our community and also help to keep alive Waterford’s traditions and stories past and present for future generations. Examples of recent Projects include:

     

    ‘Waterford Life: Now and Then’ – this book published in 2010, is a collection of stories and experiences of growing up in Waterford from a younger and an older person’s viewpoint. Topics include entertainment, work, leisure time, health, fashion, information technology etc.

     

    ‘Best Foot Forward’ – this show was staged in Garter Lane during the Bealtaine Festival 2012. It showcased the similarities and differences in terms of the ways people socialise together, from the past to the present, through music, dance, song, poetry, storytelling and drama.

     

    ‘Blás from the Past’ – this project explored Waterford’s Food Heritage down through the ages. The group of mixed ages from the local community gathered recipes of Waterford dishes and published a calendar of dishes for 2013. The calendar was launched at the Waterford Harvest Festival in September 2012.

     

    ‘Fair Day in Waterford’ -  Song Writing Project: During the summer of 2013 Roisin McGrath (Music Teacher & Community Musician) facilitated the Waterford Intergenerational Group to write the lyrics for the song ‘Fair Day in Waterford’ in a songwriting workshop. Roisin wrote the music for the song and worked with the group to perform the song at the Waterford Harvest Festival September 2013. Following this, Roisin and the Waterford & South Tipperary Regional Youth Services facilitated the Intergenerational group to record the song on CD.

     

     ‘Waterford Hoedown’ - The Intergenerational Group met weekly during the summer of 2014 to design art pieces and learn line dancing to create Waterford’s very own hoedown which took place in Wyse Park during the Waterford Harvest Festival 2014! The Waterford Hoedown was a family friendly event, with music, dancing and food enjoyed by all at the event!
