  • Illuminate the value of oral history as a method of documenting history, validating personal memory, combating social isolation and generation community memory.
The project will be delivered through

  • the provision of seven two-hour workshops,
  • personalised, experience-based mentoring to individuals and groups,
  • a concluding workshop to follow period of mentoring that will collectively address all issues raised and maximise learning outcomes.
