PLACE-EE Webinar. Digital Archiving of Cultural Heritage: The involvement of older people and intergenerational approaches

PLACE-EE (Platforms for Ageing Community Engagement – Exchange and Enterprise) has researched, collated and recorded important cultural heritage across 4 rural and isolated regions of Europe (NI, Ireland, Iceland, and Sweden). Professor Gerry Leavey from Ulster University presents the PLACE-EE project and how it worked in an intergenerational way to create a unique archive, and older participants from each region will comment on their experience of being involved. Guest speakers: Vicki Titterington, Linking Generations NI, talks about how an intergenerational approach worked in PLACE-EE and how such work can continue in the current COVID times. Lynsey Gillespie, Public Record Office NI, talks about digital archiving of cultural heritage and involving older people with reference to Making the Future project. Roger O’Sullivan, Institute of Public Health Ireland gave the closing comments.
