Listen To Our Stories
The Grandparents StoryLab is an intergenerational storytelling and art project which links older New Yorkers with children. We create podcasts with grandparents in the community and we equip children with the audio skills to interview their own grandparents or elders in their community. Giving grandparents the opportunity to share stories and giving children the opportunity to listen, learn and then re-create the elders memories through art is a key way we seek to ignite the imagination of children and facilitate dialogue and artistic expression between generations.
