Wexford Stories is a project that draws on the imagination of older people in Wexford through engaging them in the tradition of storytelling – a practice that connects people through places, culture and history.
Creative Ireland Wexford in partnership with South East Radio, Wexford PPN and Wexford Age Friendly will deliver this project via radio over four weeks with a weekly one-hour radio programme.
This four-week series will focus on local storytellers telling Wexford Stories, giving listeners an insight into the local folklore around many landmarks in the County. Incorporating the sense of place within the stories provides an additional link for the listener, if they are familiar with the area being discussed.
This project aims to provides a means of escape and ‘switch off’ through the stories, a talking point for people when they do engage with one another, and a means of keeping the imagination active.
