LIVING OLD CREATIVE CYCLE / CYCLE VIVRE VIEUX
The thematic of aging in Quebec is a delicate subject, stirring up emotion and indignation. Vivre vieux / Living old offers the possibility to perceive this new reality - which concerns us all - as an opportunity to believe in the power of our individual and collective actions in making a difference; in creating a future in which we want to grow old. With the activities of the creative cycle, UN ET UN FONT MILLE invites the community to be a part of the change, as we harbor the belief in their ability to reimagine the realm of possibility.
