  • Seniors Create Project

    In the fall of 2016, South Granville Seniors Centre partnered with Marnie Perrin (Project Lead) to hold creative workshops at several seniors' centres, collecting stories about invisibility in later life.

    The touching and inspiring stories collected have been worked into a performance script and an amazing cast of senior-aged actors has been assembled: Yvonne Adalian, Bernard Cuffling, Richard Newman and Gina Stockdale. This project highlights long lives lived with great strength and resiliency. The stories collected show the joy and great privilege in aging.

    Four performances of View from a Window have been held to date, and we are continuing to raise funds to support the project through GoFundMe. The money raised will pay the professional senior-aged actors and help increase the number of performances we can offer to seniors’ organizations. Please help us meet our fundraising goals so we can continue to share these special stories with our community!

    Interested in bringing View From a Window to your community? Contact 604-732-0812 for more information or email seniorscreate@gmail.com for more information and fee schedule.  Please see View from a Window Technical Requirements 2018.
