Aspiring storytellers partnered with
Inspiring older adults
How It Works
It's a simple idea: Aspiring audio and video content creators want to tell stories.
We partner them with older adults who have stories to tell.
Apprentice storytellers work with professionals. Together they make a short video or audio documentary, podcast or animation about a senior citizen, family member, teacher, friend... anyone who wants to share a story.
We teach interviewing skills, cinematography, sound design and editing using professional equipment.
Older adults benefit from a positive interaction that helps decrease the effects of isolation and detachment while encouraging intergenerational cohesion.
The audience enjoys a collection of entertaining, original short films, podcasts and animations.
