Memory Archive of the Côa Valley

TELLING THE RECENT STORY OF PAST REALITIES

amvc


arquivoThe Memory Archive éis an intergenerational project that through the collection of life stories and ancient activities, aims to gather the community and value the immaterial heritage. It is promoted by ACÔA – Association of friends of Côa Park and Côa Museum and funded by the program Gulbenkian of Human Development between generations.

The first idea was based in two concepts: diminish the isolation and solitude of seniors, especially those who live in retirement house or spend the day in day-care center; and the need to collect and record their lifestyles, which drastically changed over the last decades.

How to combine both objectives?
Promoting dynamics between generations. Youngers collect elder's testimonials. New relations are built and a new memory archive, accessible for everybody, is created

Youngers tell the story of elders, a recent story of past realities.
