Time Frames Program

Time Frames Program

The Time Frames Program is a brand new program that provides a vehicle for adults fifty five and older with disabilities and seniors to express themselves through a community based arts program that will also addresses various issues facing the communities they live within. In effect this program is a community development / engagement program for under served communities that tap into the lived experiences of community elders. The program is structured around three components that explore the past, present and future. 
It is during the last three weeks in the program, during the FUTURE component that elders and youth will come together to collaborate on a number of community - based art projects to address identified needs or issues within various communities.

We invite any youth who would be interested in participating in the Time Frames Program to join us for this opportunity to creatively shape the future. There will also be an exhibition of the art works created throughout the Time Frames Program to celebrate the accomplishments of all the participants in the program.

Below are the dates and times for the program.
DATES:  November 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th

TIMES: 1:00 – 3:30PM
PLACE: Seniors Lounge, Bloomfield Centre, 2786 Agricola Street
