Description:
The life of Irish Travellers has changed hugely within a few generations. Many older Travellers on different sites fear a loss of culture is occurring. They feel intimidated by the young Travellers as they cannot identify with their modern ways, slang, and education. This creates a gap between the generations. Similarly younger Travellers feel that older Travellers are always giving out about them regardless of what they do and so they don't make attempts to communicate with them. To address these differences and narrow the gap between the generations, a group of Travellers of different ages came together at Pavee Point to work on a unique multigenerational project. Travelling Through the Generations is the fruit of that work. Young Travellers learned of the harsh realities of their grandparents’ lives and older Travellers learned that the young generation is still very proud of their culture and identity.Over a six week period 12 younger and older Travellers engaged in a number of creative activities in a facilitated setting. Through group work and reflective practice, the group explored numerous issues relating to the need for intergenerational solidarity within the community. From these early workshops, the group identified a number of core issues. A self-directed programme began with the group breaking up into sub groups to explore each of the issues. Through utilising the skills and learning of both generations and developing on the earlier learning, the final projects were developed. Project Aim The aim of the project was to create space to explore and document an understanding of Traveller culture, beliefs and values, through intergenerational communication and solidarity. Objectives 1. To create an understanding of the core values and beliefs informing Traveller culture. 2. To facilitate exchange of skills through intergenerational projects. 3. To develop an appreciation of the contribution of knowledge, experience and wisdom of the older generation to the community. 4. To facilitate a mutual understanding and respect between the generations. 5. To understand the elements of Traveller culture that need to be transferred through the generations.
