Golden Thread Gallery presents My Generation, an intergenerational arts project, with the North Belfast Senior Citizens Forum (NBSCF), Let Youth Lead (LYL),  Ardoyne Shankill Health Partnership (ASHP) and Youth Education Help and Advice (YEHA).  My Generation brings older people together with young people from north Belfast and artists from the Golden Thread Gallery to swap clothes,  attitudes reminiscences and experiences resulting in both a publication and an exhibition that fuse the experiences and skills of different generations together. 

The exhibition will start on Tuesday 5th March and runs until 14th March 2013.  My Generation will also be open late on 7th March as part of Late Night Art.
