INTGEN Framing Our Memories
The intention of this event was to to honour intergenerational connections by learning to capture and preserve memories. We hoped to create a space that allowed participants to creatively express themselves, learn from other generations, discover ways to share stories, and recognize the beauty of meaningful legacies. Our guest speaker, Doreen Vanderstoop (Storytelling Alberta), described their StoryShare program and shared some of the recordings their organization has made to perserve the stories and memories of Calgary seniors.
During this event, the audience participated in a small group activity and 'framed' their memories.
