Adult Learning Huts, Lovers Loan, Lerwick
In this workshop,you can learn activities to engage the generations with investigating, capturing and portraying their place, including community mapping and storytelling.
Scotland's Urban Past (SUP) brings people of all ages together to investigate, record and celebrate their towns and cities. SUP offers free training, including investigating and recording local buildings and landscape and historical research of other kinds, to enable community groups to create and fulfill their own projects about Scotland's urban areas.
Projects supported by SUP can range from soundscapes and short films to using historical documents to myth-bust local urban legends. These can work very well with intergenerational approaches. Got an intergenerational (or other) project idea to suggest? Got a story of your place to share? Anyone can get involved.
There will be the opportunity to book a 1-1 follow up session with Scotland’s Urban Past staff members to discuss and progress any project ideas.
Suitable for heritage newcomers.
Due to limited capacity of the venue, booking in advance is recommended.
