Case Study: Swansea Windrush Intergenerational...

The Windrush Intergenerational Project was developed by the African Community Centre (ACC), working with young people in local schools, to research the lives of the Windrush generation who arrived in Wales from the West Indies between the 1940s and 1970s. The project sought to bridge the gap between older and younger generations, especially with regards to passing down culture, tradition, journeys, settlement and other experiences. It records and documents the amazing contributions that Black and Ethnic Minority migrants have brought to the UK, and to Swansea/Neath Port Talbot in particular. In total, the project celebrates the lives of ten elders, a combination of members of the Windrush generation and other persons whose contributions have made South Wales a multicultural society. The case study text is bilingual however the video interviews and booklet are available in English only.   Key Stage 3 & 4 History, Literacy skills, Digital Competence Framework   Case Study See how other schools have used our website to give you ideas for your own digital projects.
