Community Time Machine
The ‘Time Machine’ is an age-friendly, cross-generational neighbourhood time capsule project which connects communities across the country, supported by the local authorities & Creative Ireland.
The project connects young people and senior citizens who live in the same area. Facilitated interviews are conducted between the pair and their recorded responses, art works and photos create an image of how the community looks now and how it looked in the past.
The Community Time Machine was launched successfully in our pilot project with Wicklow County Council Arts Office in January 2021. We are now running it in Westmeath, Monaghan, Clare & Meath and hope to bring it to communities in other counties in the near future.
