JOIN THE DOTS
Connecting our Community through Art
Therapeutic Seniors Art Group (55 and over)
We are pleased to announce that Burwood Community Welfare Services (BCWS) will be running two therapeutic seniors’ art groups for the Burwood community and surrounding areas. The program will be held in Burwood and transportation is available. The group will be led by facilitators from BCWS and there will be 10 to 12 people in each group.
Running for six weeks, this program will cater to seniors from diverse cultural backgrounds who may be experiencing loneliness and isolation, ill health, changes in life circumstances, and the death of loved ones. The program aims to create an opportunity to connect with other people in the local area in a safe, relaxed, and fun environment.
Each week the group will participate in different artistic activities. Through drawing, painting, and other creative means we will discuss common themes experienced by people in this age group.
Date and time for the first group:
5th September to 10th October (six weeks)
Date and time for the second group:
6th September to 11th October (six weeks)
An opportunity to connect with people in your local community
