This intergenerational event from North Argyll Carers Centre will bring together carers from the age of 8 to 86 to talk and write about celebration. Take part in this unique opportunity for carers to work together on a truly inclusive project regardless of age, caring responsibilities or geographical location.

You will work with author and Primary School teacher Pam Rae, and receive a free copy of her book Our Other Lives to read in advance of the session. The book focuses on World War II in a Glasgow school, transporting a group of four school friends back in time where they experience the life changing events of the war. During the session, participants are encouraged to think about and discuss the comparisons between our world coming out of lockdown and the war ending. Older carers will share their wartime memories and the group will be encouraged to write about their experiences of celebrating these momentous events.

Pam has been teaching writing to children of all ages and nationalities for over 20 years and finds seeing children's writing skills develop a delight to experience.

The event will take place in a marquee to allow for socially distanced in-person discussions.
