What are teenagers curious about when it comes to older people? What was it like growing up as a young person decades ago, and what’s better about being a teen now as opposed to then? The answers to these questions and others will be the subject of Los Altos History Museum’s program “Everything Old is New Again,” held in person and on Zoom, Saturday, April 9 from 10:30 – 11:30 am.
High school students who participated in the Museum’s Teen Docent Program will conduct one-on-one conversations with some of the seniors featured in the Museum’s current exhibition, “Every Wrinkle Tells a Story: Intertwining Lives.” The exhibition of black-and-white photographs by artist Maud Daujean showcases local seniors who share, in taped interviews, their experiences living in early Silicon Valley, and how it has changed through the years.
With the idea that every generation can learn from previous generations, the format of the program allows Teen Docents the opportunity to ask questions of 65- to 90-year-old residents through casual conversation. The public is invited to eavesdrop, or join in on the conversations with their own inquiries. For those attending on Zoom, questions may be asked via the chat function.
