Had the pleasure of facilitating a group of young & elderly people for a project called Dear Me. The purpose of the project? Quite simple, you write a story to your future self. This could be a year from now, or 50 years from now. I loved every part of the project. It felt good to talk to the young people and explore a different approach to letter writing however, working with the elderly folks was equally rewarding. Rather than writing to the future, they wrote to their younger selves. They looked at the choices they made, and whether they could have advised their younger selves any different. We had laughter, tears, questions but most importantly - we have letters!
Thank you Small Green Shoots. Thank you the brave people of Slough!
