Creating Memories update

Innovative Art Project Brings Generations Together

Home Nursing Group, with the New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) and Armidale High School, facilitated the Creating Memories project – an intergenerational project that gave younger and older audiences the opportunity to share experiences, using NERAM’s art collection as the starting point for discussions.

As Creating Memories was developed over 2013-14, the programme began attracting widespread support and community participation, and NERAM’s rich collections became the catalyst for the audience, young and old, to make memories together. The aim of NERAM and the Home Nursing Group through Creating Memories was ultimately to combat social isolation among the elderly members of the Armidale community. As they viewed the gallery’s diverse exhibition, dialogue between the students of Armidale High School and the elderly residents of our town’s community was shared.

 

Creating Memories

  • An innovative intergenerational project bringing together younger and older members of the New England community in a shared experience using the New England Regional Art Museum (NERAM) rich collections as a catalyst for reminiscence.
  • Shared stories and created memories were captured using the medium of film, photography and mixed media artworks. Memories shared across generations are the traditional glue that binds families and communities together. Amid growing concerns about the loss of community and memory, the Creating Memories project aimed to promote and reinvigorate intergenerational communication using artworks from NERAM’s rich collections as a meeting point. A painting is the start of a creative journey, a trigger for memory, an inspiration for art-making and a window into a person’s life history. Personal recollection and stories were transformed into a visual artwork, using the creative potential of new media.
