Building Intergenerational Connections Through Creativity and Culture
Our goal is to have youth and seniors share their experiences and stories while working together. Our innovative and interdisciplinary format uses theatre, story-telling, poetry, film, painting, technology, music, and creative horticultural design to bring young people and senior adults together on a regular basis to discover and share meaning through their life stories.
A series of hands-on workshops will be organized around interconnected themes and participants will be invited to one of 3 mentored-projects:
1) Making Movies By and About Community (Film Team)
2) Creative Placemaking Around Our Front Yards (Placemaking Team)
3) Making A Collaborative Blanket Together (Weaving Team)
Public presentation of group’s work and celebration will follow.
Be part of a first-of-a-kind community arts-based engagement!
