With the stories of older generations from the local area, the project focuses on the experiences of youth, enabling the sharing of their histories with the young participants. The project allowed young people to compare and reflect on their own contemporary lives.
All Present explores the heritage of local people and places around Bridgend, from the 1940’s till Present day. Through exploring these 8 different eras it ensures the heritage that has not previously been recorded or documented and is currently only know by older generations is heard by all.
