Author and historian, Turtle Bunbury is putting a call out to the people of Ireland, asking them to propose family members or friends over the age of 70, who have stories to tell.
Vanishing Ireland is a podcast series of interviews with Ireland’s elders, celebrating their courage, kindness and humour. In audio format, Turtle discusses life and its learnings with people across Ireland, saving and celebrating their voices for future generations.
Photographer, James Fennell, will photograph each interviewee, bringing this wonderful Vanishing Ireland project to life once more.
Speaking about the Vanishing Ireland Podcast Series, Turtle says: “It is so important to chronicle the experiences and voices of our older generations. Just listening to the stories of how they lived their lives helps us to learn how to adapt their wisdom and humour, to manage and enjoy our own lives.”
All interviews and photography will take place in line with Covid19 restrictions, and interviews will be conducted remotely via conferencing software.
