ART FOR SENIORS

“Art is the mean and the blossoming the purpose”

Launched on March 11, 2016 in Bordeaux, this project imagined by ‟ Bordeaux Bonheur ˮ and ‟ Pôle Magnetic ˮ, in partnership with the EHPAD Notre Dame de Bonne Espérance is the founding stone of an approach that brings Street Art and the elderly together.

Faced with the enthusiasm and the welcome that the elderly have in store for us, this audience has shown us their interest in urban art, thereby breaking free of received ideas.

 

In consultation with the residents but also with the multidisciplinary EHPAD teams, we would like to continue this adventure by re-enchanting their living space on the principle of ‟Workshopsˮ. They will be articulated around drawing lessons, meeting with an artist from Street Art, initiation to different techniques and finally the creation of a fresco on a wall of the establishment.

To quote a resident of the EHPAD: ‟ to work is to advance ˮ
