We have been very lucky to have had an intern working with us over the past ten weeks. Her name is Marion and she is a social work student from Paris. She has been supporting activities across our three centres and, as part of her placement she put together an intergenerational “speed dating” afternoon. Half a dozen young people who use the services at 1A Arts came here to Millman Street to meet and get to know some of our members.
The event was a great success and many an interesting story was swapped across the years. The young people enjoyed it so much they asked if they could visit us again and we have arranged a couple more events for the summer.
