Taste of the Old Times / Calendar

Taste of the Old Times
Taste of the Old Times

Due to the survey, 60% of the teenagers in Taiwan had seldom/never interacted with their grandparents. Even though they still talk to each other, the subjects are always the same or just brief greetings. It has led to a deep gap between generation. We interviewed many Taiwanese elders, gathering the unique items which belong to their era, and then transform the old memories items into new topics that they can chat with on the “Old Time Memories Calendar”. By creating the conversation daily, the positive connections may be generated. Only if the teenagers learn how to filial their grandparents, they would take attention to the aged society.
