Monster Arts for Youth Seniors Program
Learn more about our expansion of the Monster Arts for Youth program below!
The #MonsterArts for Youth Seniors Program is a program run by MonstrARTity, wherein South Asian seniors receive FREE workshops from experienced artists in various South Asian art forms such as dance, music, poetry and visual arts. Workshops are designed to accommodate seniors of ALL physical and cognitive abilities, and since workshops are entirely ONLINE, they are safe for ALL seniors.
Thanks to funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the MAY Seniors Program is expanding to provide more workshops in languages such as Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and Gujarati. And thanks to the Region of Peel and Canadian Red Cross Society, the program has now been adapted to a fully VIRTUAL experience. The MAY Seniors Program serves as a cornerstone of support for South Asian seniors in developing feelings of harmony & camaraderie within the community and reducing feelings of isolation.
“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 [Hindi] love song. He smiled as well and let us know it was the good kind of tears.”
