We're thrilled to announce that all 15 digital stories (from the Transportation DVD we produced) are now posted here on our website and our youtube page for your viewing.
With funding from New Horizons for Seniors, Government of Canada, the Seniors Hub worked with Jessica Hallenbeck, Thor Larsen, Cheryl Buckman and Jessa Williams to collect digital stories from seniors in Southeast Vancouver who have been negatively impacted by lack of appropriate transportation.
Volunteers, both young adults and seniors were trained to operate a digital camera and recorder and to collect stories from the seniors.
The 15 digital stories (on DVD) that were created and presented, accounted very honest and moving personal stories about the many diverse transportation challenges experienced by South Van Seniors.
We also held a celebration to showcase the DVD on April 20, 2013 at Sunset Community Centre in Vancouver, BC.
We wish to thank everyone who was a part of this wonderful project... all the seniors who took part, the video-makers, the youth and the volunteers - thank you!
We always welcome your comments and feedback.
