Together Project – Connecting Generations through Creativity is a new initiative by Kerry Writers’ Museum and Fighting Words Kerry bringing young and older members of the community together in a programme of creative workshops including:

1. Storytelling – Participants will share their stories and life experiences with each other.

2. Creative writing – From the shared stories, participants, with the support of a professional writer, will work on creating a piece of work. This may take the format of a short story, poem or theatrical piece.

3. Traditional music & song – Working with professional musicians and singers participants will develop an intergenerational performance piece that will link to the written material produced.

4. Digital Media/Film – Participants will use digital media to record the project process and development. They will work with film makers to produce a documentary production on the project and learn new technical skills in digital media and film.

Workshops will be provided free of charge and workshop directors will include storyteller Godfrey Coppinger, writers Gabriel Fitzmaurice & Eileen Sheehan, traditional musician Matt Dean and film maker Chris Fitzgerald.

If you are between the ages of 8 to 16 and 55+ and would like to get involved in The Together Project please call Kerry Writers’ Museum on 068 22212 or email thetogetherprojectkerry@gmail.com.

The Together Project is supported by Creative Ireland and Creative Kerry through Kerry County Council Arts Office.
