Praisesongs -Celebrating the lives of older men and women of colour living in Wales Be sure to visit:

Welcome to Praisesongs,, a creative space and research resource dedicated to the celebration of older men and women of colour living in Wales (and their descendents), and to the development of a digital story archive of their lives. The aim is to also provide a space in which to reflect on new ways of generating research evidence about the everyday lives of older men and women from diverse population groups that can be used to make an positively impact on their lives. We honour their lives and the role they play as our Elders.
This is one story of many that we are collecting as part of Praisesongs.

Background to story:

This story is rooted in the Representing Butetown case study, conducted as part of the Representing Communities Project (2017 - 2017) - Funded by the AHRC, the aim of the project was to Explores how community representations produced through creative arts practices can be used as forms of evidence or knowledge to inform health-related policy and service development as well as social action.

Representing Butetown sought to explore personal and collective histories of the Caribbean migratory experience, and to what extent they shape the everyday lives, health and well-being of Caribbean elders.
This case study will also explore representations of Butetown held by those with emotional ties to the area. We are interested in public spaces within Butetown where people have gathered for life-affirming events and regular social activities. We are interested in how such spaces and activities impact on health and well-being, and on notions of belonging and community.

The case study was led by Dr Roiyah Saltus, University of South Wales. The story was co-produced with Lisa Heledd Jones (Storyworks UK)
