In total over 70 Young People participated in this project.
12 of them learnt how to research their local heritage in depth.
They learnt from and collaborated with intergenerational groups including the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall, and our Local History Group.
Others learnt valuable skills in technology and design, interpreting the story of Wythenshawe in diverse, creative ways
They helped to plan 20 heritage workshops to enable other Young People to express their heritage creatively.
They learnt how to plan a large community event
They taught older people how to use the Augmented Reality technology to enable them to benefit.
The wider Wythenshawe community have also learnt about their heritage as a result of the project, the book, the community event and the installation in the local library.
Children in Wythenshawe schools will learn about their heritage from the Local History Resources produced.
The community will have changed their attitudes towards Wythenshawe, which traditionally has negative connotations and a poor image, realising that we share a rich heritage and a bright future.
Everyone has had an enjoyable experience – from the Young People who experienced various creative stimuli, working with professionals and using fantastic technology at the WOW Zone, to the wider community who are enjoying the positive experience of seeing the work celebrated and displayed.
