JAMII’S NEW PROJECT – CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS:
As one might imagine, this winter has been especially hard for many of the seniors in our neighbourhood. Jamii's intention is to feature the voices and stories of our local seniors and invite them to take a central seat in our community as we share moments of their journeys, aspects of their resilience, and the richness of their stories.
This project offers 10 participating seniors the opportunity to connect with a local youth and share their story through a series of one-on-one conversations. The youth are invited to design and create an exhibit of portraits that encapsulates these seniors' stories through words and photography. This exhibit will then presented in David Crombie Park in the early Spring so that all can view and enjoy the presentation.
We hope this project will contribute to enhancing social cohesion in our community during these extraordinary times.
If you are interested in participating please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest.
