DLL will be lighting up attractions in Denbighshire this week in support of Global Intergenerational Week.

Rhyl Sky Tower, Rhyl Pavilion Theatre, 1891 Restaurant and Bar, Promenade shelters and the Events Arena waterfall will all be lit up in pink from 24th to 28th April, in support of Global Intergenerational Week, and to highlight two fantastic cross-generational projects led by their own Community Arts team.

Thanks to funding from Public Health Wales, DLL’s Community Arts team have been busy facilitating two very successful Intergenerational Story Pals projects, one with Ysgol Frongoch and Denbigh Infirmary, and a second with St David’s Care Home in Rhyl and Ysgol Dewi Sant.  The project which looks to connect younger and older people within local communities, through the use of stories and art, has been hugely well received.  Working with a local artist, who coordinates the work between the two different generations, the two groups finally meet at the end of the project to enjoy what they have achieved together, in a true intergenerational celebration!

Global Intergenerational Week is a campaign which looks to encourage and inspire individuals, groups, and organisations on a local, national, and global scale, to connect people from different age groups, bringing them together in various activities, and creating new ways of connecting generations.

Jamie Groves, Managing Director of DLL said “Our Community Arts team have been heavily involved in two fantastic projects in support of Global Intergenerational Week, both of which have been very well received and thoroughly enjoyed by all of the participants.  We are proud to have watched the development of the project reach such an inspiring conclusion, and are also delighted to light up in pink in support of such a creative and motivating campaign.”
