Storytelling focus for Creative Schools project

As we enter our third year of working with Blessed Trinity College, Belfast on the Creative Schools project, we look forward to an exciting new phase of the rewarding intergenerational work with Newington Day Centre.

Workshops with Sheena and Sean are taking place throughout January and February and focus on the “The Story of Who We Are”.  The aim is to show the voices and faces of North Belfast through dance, portrait photography and creative writing.  This week the Trinity students got to talk to the members of Newington Day Centre about their past and then they represented the history of North Belfast together through improvised dance.

Here’s a fun fact about our project participants – the oldest group member was born in 1932 and youngest born in 2009!

Thank you to the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Education Authority and Urban Villages for this opportunity.
