dlr Time Machine Neighbourhood Project

The ‘Time Machine’ is an age-friendly, cross-generational neighbourhood time capsule project which connects communities across the country, supported by local County Councils, Creative Ireland, Age Friendly Ireland and the Department of Rural & Community Development.

dlr are inviting community members to act as organisers for this exciting project. The role of community organisers is to gather a group of young people, aged 12 – 18, to interview senior members of their community over the phone. The interviews give both participants a valuable opportunity to learn from each other and connect with their community.

Each teenager that takes part is invited to create something based on the conversation they had with their partner. That could be anything at all, such as, a painting, a photograph or a poem, the sky is the limit! The final pieces will be exhibited on this website as part of the Community Time Machine digital archive.

To get involved as a community organiser register your interest and they will be in touch!
