Cross-Generation Art in Bristol

Description

Students from the City Academy Bristol, who are refugees or asylum seekers, work hand in hand with a group of elderly people on a joint project to benefit the whole community.

The young pupils who may have little or no English, work with the older volunteers in pairs to design and create a mosaic for the Trinity Community Centre, with guidance from artist Victoria Appleton.

The activity encourages communication between the two groups to improve the language skills of the students and to bring representatives from old and new communities of Bristol together, helping to break down barriers and build positive relationships.

Part of the series: Community Cohesion through School Partnerships
