This was a collaborative project between United Active Living Garrison Green, LinkAges and the Calgary Chinese Elderly Citizens’ Association. Fifteen older adults from these three organizations joined together once a week for six weeks to participate in critical discussion about ageing and ageism and to engage in different modalities of art making. The project aimed to enhance participation and inclusion of older adults by providing them with opportunities to build a sense of community, to engage in activism through arts and to promote a sense of motivation and acceptance. We successfully ran three classes with very positive feedback from the participants.
