The Ageless City

While the news continues to burble on in the background and no one seems to have a clue what to do, we’re pressing on sharing the best of Cardiff’s alternative  culture and arts scene.

Today we want to tell you about a project called The Ageless City: Intergenerational Spaces for Culturally Diverse Neighbourhoods in Europe. It’s an experimental project that brings together young and senior residents of culturally and ethnically diverse neighbourhoods in two European cities – Mouraria in Lisbon (Portugal) and Butetown in Cardiff.

The main goal of this intergenerational project is that these different generations reflect on alternative ways to improve the appropriation of urban spaces, social interaction and the preservation of their city’s cultural heritage through humanities-based activities. The project is funded by the European Cultural Foundation, just by the way … so best make the most of this kind of thing while we still can.

Organisers are currently recruiting participants from Butetown aged 10-16 and over 60 years old.

PLEASE head along to see the implementation of the project:

10am – 12pm, 11 – 15 July, at The Cardiff Story museum.
