Alternative Energies

Youth Engagement Project in Ballycastle

We are excited to be planning a brand new Intergenerational Dance Project which will take place in Ballycastle from September 2021 onwards.

This intergenerational project will bring together young people aged 15-20 years with elders 65+ living in the Ballycastle area. At a time when there are few situations that bring people of different generations together, the project seeks to address this lack of connection, advocating the power of dance as a vehicle for personal, social and community cohesion. Once established, the Alternative Energies group will meet weekly to work, talk and create together, devising performances and events that resonate with people of different ages.
