Digital Premiere: Hello in There, a Documentary by Berny Hi and Matthew Ripplinger
In 2013, Common Weal Community Arts partnered with artist Chrystene Ells and together they posed the question: Can the lives of seniors living in care facilities be enriched through creative engagement and arts programming? Thus began the Hello in There program, which supports the social participation of seniors through storytelling and memory-sharing arts activities. Everyone has a story to be told. This film features the stories of select seniors who’ve participated in the program and highlights the importance of providing seniors with creative pathways that validate their life experience, connect them to their families and community, and equate to numerous mental and physical health benefits. To learn more about the Hello in There program and how you can adopt the Hello in There program model for use with the seniors in your life please visit: https://commonweal.ca/hello-in-there-resource
This event is free.
