Monster Arts for Youth Seniors Program

Learn more about our expansion of the Monster Arts for Youth program below!

The #MonsterArts for Youth Seniors (MAY Seniors) Program is a program wherein South Asian seniors receive free workshops from experienced artists in various South Asian art forms such as dance, music, poetry and visual arts. The program was created to address community issues. As there are very few cultural and language specific programs that are relevant to seniors within the South Asian community, our goal is to provide them with a chance to reconnect with their peers through free, interactive workshops that are led by experienced artists.

In addition to providing a space for seniors, the MAY Seniors program strives to reduce feelings of isolation and instead help build camaraderie through our interactive music, dance and arts workshops. The program is offered in various languages such as English, Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Urdu and Gujarati and as of 2020, workshops are now available virtually.
