Join the Community with #MonsterArts for Seniors
Started in 2018, #MonsterArts for Seniors engages seniors via professionally-led arts workshops in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Tamil and more to reduce feelings of isolation. Seniors reconnect to South Asian culture through workshops in Bollywood dance, Hindi and Tamil music, poetry and visual arts. This program fills gaps in cultural and language-specific services for seniors in the community and enables them to connect with friends old and new. Workshops are available virtually & in-person across the GTHA at no cost to seniors and are adapted for participants of all ability levels.
“One of our male participants began to tear up. He was reminiscing about something or someone from his past that the song reminded him of and someone pointed out that it was a love song. He smiled as well and let us know it was the good kind of tears. Pushpinder’s performance allowed him to feel that emotion.”

“What I liked about the workshop is the creativity it brings out in me and that it is expanding my mind.”
“One client was following along to the moves in her seat and was smiling watching the others. She seemed a bit hesitant to stand up and dance, but I could tell she wanted to and encouraged her to try some moves standing. We positioned another chair in front of her so she could hold the back of it for support if she needed. She remained standing for the rest of the time. She really enjoyed that opportunity to fully participate.”

“Graceful, gentle exercises. Krystal spent enough time on each movement for us to pick them up. It is also nice to do exercises in a group.”
