Artful Connections

“A wellness program for South Asian seniors 60 years plus”

After a very challenging 2020 we began 2021 with inspiration, hope and positivity. Our new wellness program expressly for South Asian seniors living in the GTA called – Artful Connections has helped us to get through the winter months  with a little help from the arts and the artists. We are now offering Spring workshops in April and May 2021. Join us from the comfort of your own home to learn something new or do a little more of what you love. Meet new people and have a little fun (hopefully a lot of fun) among fellow seniors. We welcome all seniors 60 plus who will have access to join us online who reside in the GTA (including but not limited to Mississauga / Brampton / Halton Hills / Toronto / Etobicoke /Scarborough). Workshop are offered FREE of charge. Spaces will be offered on a first come basis. Participants will be able to participate in ONE artistic activity of interest.
