Discover what guides Culture for seniors!
Working with the community, this project aims to improve the health and well-being of seniors by encouraging social participation and inclusion through arts and culture.
Our approach: a collective impact
To break the social isolation of seniors on our territory, Culture for seniors adopts a collective impact approach—an innovative model that relies on collaboration. To achieve long-lasting change, this approach unites several organizations and stakeholders around a common issue.
Together, we go farther!
Our challenge: reduce social isolation
Research shows that social isolation is a phenomenon that has adverse consequences on both the physical and mental well-being of seniors.
Our strategy: promote social participationSocial participation is a key determinant of health and promotes active aging in seniors. With this in mind, Culture for seniors organizes and supports activities that encourage the social inclusion of seniors.
Our leverage: cultural mediationCultural mediation is an approach through which social participation in artistic and cultural activities allows individuals to build relationships and break the isolation. Culture for seniors has adapted this approach to its ethical values and principles.
