Seniors and Photography
We excited to announce that our Founder Diana Nazareth will serve as a project consultant and lead instructor for the Regent Park Seniors’ PhotoVoice Project (RPSPP)!
RPSPP is a free photography and storytelling workshop designed for seniors ages 65 + who reside in Regent Park, Toronto. In a series of weekly workshops, participants will be encouraged to explore what they consider the ‘heart’ of their community through photography, the written word and audio recordings. The project will culminate in a community-wide photo exhibit and celebration at the ArtHeart Community Centre showcasing the seniors’ photographs, writings and recordings.
The project will culminate in a community-wide photo exhibit and celebration at Daniels Spectrum showcasing the participants’ photographs and writings.
We are currently inviting seniors 65 + interested in learning about photography and writing to apply. No previous experience is necessary. All materials will be provided. Please note that registration is on a first-come, first serve basis and spots are limited.
