Woodworking initiative brings about intergenerational dialogue

The SWAMIH Project (Senior Wisdom and the Mobile Information Hub) aimed to create opportunities for intergenerational dialogue, for older adults to share their wisdom and interact with the younger generation.
With the support of the RACV Community Foundation, AMCS collaborated with the Westvale Men’s Shed and students from the Stevensville Primary School to work together to produce a wooden multicultural tree structure.
First consultations between the Westvale Community Centre and the Men’s Shed members commenced in November 2019. In February 2020, the work on the tree began with cutting, sanding and painting.
COVID-19 held up progress and the project restarted when restrictions allowed. In 2021, work began on the development of the flags and in 2022, all involved were finally able to see the final product and celebrate everyone’s involvement.
A very big thank you to all involved especially Tricia Da Costa and Immaculee Abass at the Westvale Community Centre and Leanne Keane and Stacey Whitehead at Stevensville Primary School.
The tree is now on display at the AMCS offices for all to see and enjoy.
