“We Two” is a pilot inter-generational arts project developed by author Richard Bingham and artist Angela Edwards. The project was sponsored by Adur District Council. Richard and Angela worked with 3 local schools based in Fishersgate, Shoreham and Lancing to devise the workshops to bring generations together through community arts. They delivered art and creative writing workshops in the three schools with at total of 47 year 5 pupils (aged around 10 years) and their grandparent or another older person, so 94 participants in total.
The art work and poems were displayed at the Skyway Gallery at The Shoreham Centre, with a very well-attended preview celebration for the participants and great feedback on the project from young and old and from the schools.. The team are in discussions to build on this success and extend the project into more schools and care homes.
