Is conversation really a lost art? Can it bridge the digital divide by pairing older residents with younger YouTubers?
Inspired by the television show OAP Internet Virgins on Sky1, I am working with Age Friendly Leeds to re-imagine the art of conversation in a one day workshop where older residents will be paired with YouTubers. These conversations will be recorded and shared online.
The aim is to bring together some younger Leeds residents who know their way around the internet and spend their lives online, probably through making YouTube videos, and get them to persuade older residents that there are many benefits in the internet for them.
If you are a Leeds based YouTuber and want to take part, please click here to get in touch via Twitter.
There will be an announcement shortly about the venue, but the event will be taking place on Friday 4th December.
